Here is another great addition to the growing Quickboost line of detailed exhaust parts. Here we see a set for the 1/48 Hasegawa J2M3 Raiden "Jack" WWII Japanese Interceptor/Fighter.

The exhaust set comes in the typical Quickboost plastic sleeve packaging, and contains separate exhaust stacks which are an exact fit to the kit parts.

The great thing about this set is the amount of detail provided. Not only do you get hollowed-out individual exhaust stacks, but the Quickboost parts have the proper seam on each stack - something the original kit parts do not have. In fact, the kit exhaust stacks look like blobs of plastic compared to the detail of the Quickboost parts.

I high recommend this detail set to the modeler working on any boxing of the Hasegawa 1/48 J2M3 family of kits. It is the perfect replacement to add detail to your kit's exhaust and will make for a much more realistic finish.

Thanks to Aires and Quickboost for the review sample!
