My, but I do love a good Stuka. I've been playing with 1/32nd scale Stukas ever since Revell first released their kit back in the 1970's. I've built theirs dozens of times, then the 21st Century version, and now finally Trumpeter's kits, which have filled in important gaps in the history of this fascinating aircraft.

One slight problem with the Trumpeter kit, however is the exhausts, which are molded as a solid piece. The exhaust outlets are tiny indeed, and having frustrated myself with trying to ream these out with miniature drill bits, I must admit I was quite pleased to receive the Quickboost replacement parts.

As simple, drop-in resin replacements, these really can't be beat. They feature the relatively miniscule exhausts and are beautifully molded with excellent resolution and no molding flaws which I could detect. No modifications to the kit parts need to be made - just slap them in place when you're ready for them.

I can recommend these items with no qualms, as they add that little extra bit of detail that adds so much to a model. I'm definitely going to have to look into Quickboost's online stock and see what other treasures are waiting there. My thanks to Quickboost for making these little masterpieces and to IPMS/USA for a chance to review and use them.
