The exhausts on the Italeri Mc.200 are solid piece of plastic with little detail. Quickboost's offering features deep hollowed exhaust stacks which only need to be removed and painted to bring them to life. The exhausts are direct replacements for the kit items.

Highly recommended

The Academy kit is a nice kit but could benefit from some resin upgrades. Quickboost offers an easy way to upgrade the exhausts with this little set. The set is molded in light grey resin and contains two exhaust stubs. The ends are hollowed out and include the molded on weld seems. These are drop in replacements for the kit parts so adding them is easy.

Because of the size of the parts these will not fit the Hasegawa kit without some modification, but on the Academy kit they will fit perfectly. Just some paint and these will be ready to go.

The ICM Hs-126 is a nice kit. The exhausts on the kit are just solid pieces of plastic. These little gems, molded perfectly in light grey resin, feature hollowed out ends that I would not be able to do on my own. There is no doubt these will add to the look. Simply remove them from the pour blocks and paint. A simple, yet effective, upgrade set for the Hs-126.

Highly recommended.

Now here is something you don't see everyday, a life raft for an aircraft. Designed for the Hasegawa SBD you have to open up a hole in the side of the kit. This should be fairly straight forward as it is a round access panel. This set is ideal for a diorama idea.

The set contains three pieces of light grey resin. One is the life raft itself, the receptacle in the fuselage and the access panel. Drill the hole and a quick paint job later and your SBD will stand apart from the others. I'm sure you could add this to the Accurate Miniatures kit as well.

One of the problems of plastic is the lack of detail that can be achieved with it. That is where resin reproduces the finest detail. That is what this set does, provide exquisite detail where plastic can't. This set is a drop in replacement for the kit part. Molded in light grey resin without a bubble anywhere this little set is a very nice addition with lots of molded in detail. Sand the back of the part and a paint job is all that is required to make this part jump to life.

Highly recommended
