Base Kit: Revell 1/72 B-17Package Contents
Quickboost is known for producing high quality, resin replacement parts for many model kits from most manufacturers. One of their newer offerings is a set of resin replacement propellers for Revell’s B-17 Flying Fortress.
Revell’s kit propellers are typical of what you’ll normally find, four three-blade propellers molded in plastic. They look alright, but lack that extra level of detail resin molding can produce. Not to mention, the kit parts have a thin piece of flash running around the length of each blade, which will require some delicate clean up prior to assembly and painting.
Quickboost;s replacements pieces include four spinner hubs, and a dozen new propeller blades, as well as a small jig to ensure proper fit. There is a simple drawing to show how to prepare the jig, and how to properly use it for aligning and building the propellers.
