Once again, Quickboost comes out with another addition to its resin aircraft accessories in 1/72nd scale. This time it is the oxygen cylinders for the B-17 Flying Fortress. I tried to compare it to some of the different B-17 kits that I have and none of them came with that much interior detail.  This also included the new Revell tooling that is very good. I did see some on the see-through kits and I was able to compare them with actual photos.

The parts are up to the usual Quickboost standards. They are molded in a grey resin, smooth, seamless, and bubble free. It doesn't take too much effort to get them off of the resin block. Just a quick slice with a razor saw or a #11 blade will do the trick.

If you are looking to add just that much more detail to a B-17, then this set is for you. I recommend them just for the amount of detail alone. Thanks to Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the chance to review these accessories.
