Base Kit: any 1/48 P-39 Airacobra
Thanks to Quickboost for this review sample and thanks to IPMS/USA for allowing me to review it.
This little gem easily exceeds the quality and detail of the seats found in the older P-39 kits. I wanted to look at Quickboost's offering compared to one of the newer P-39 kits. The kit I used for comparison has a seat with fine detail and very little, if any, clean-up. The particular kit I used also comes with photo-etched seat belts.
Quickboost's seat is cast in gray resin and is free of flash or casting bubbles. The casting has great detail with sharp edges, great buckle detail, and even some stitching can be seen on some areas of the straps. Speaking of the straps, these lay across the seat naturally with a relaxed drape to them. However, the shoulder straps appear to be wider than the actual seat belts and are actually wider than the PE belts of the kit's seat.
