The porcupine exhaust on the Beaufighter are distinctive and not the easiest thing to injection mold in a kit. So Quickboost has made some resin replacements for the new Airfix kits and they are beauties.

The kit exhaust is made up of two parts where the Quickboost item is just one part. My only concern is the replacement is noticeably bigger than the kit parts. But when compared to the 72nd drawings that I have the replacement part looks dead on.

So, another quick replacement that really will add to your next Beaufighter build.

Thanks to Aires and IPMS/USA for the review kit.
