Quickboost added the top antenna for the tail of the FW 190A-4 to their line of resin aircraft accessories. This latest addition is molded in a cream colored resin, smooth, seamless and bubble free. One thing of note is that they are easy to remove from the mold block taking only a couple of minutes with a saw blade to remove them.

The package states that it is for the Tamiya kit but should work with any kit that you want to covert past an A-3 model. From what I've researched about the Tamiya kit, the 1/48thkit comes with the option to do the A-3 or A-4 but the 1/72 only comes as an A-3. Once again Quickboost comes to the rescue to let the 1/72ndmodeler have the same options. All that is needed is to cut along the seam line of the A-3 antenna and glue the A-4 antenna in place.

I highly recommend this product if you want to convert a FW 190A-3 to an A-4 or any other later version that used the same antenna. Usually aftermarket parts need some work to get them installed properly but this antenna replacement is molded so that it is very easy to place properly. Thanks to Quickboost and IPMS USA for the chance to do this review.
