Quickboost's line of after market exhaust options just keeps on growing. The latest addition is for the Hasegawa JU88 A-4. It is up to their usual standards; molded in a cream colored resin, smooth, seamless and bubble free. One thing of note is that they are really easy to remove from the mold block with just a few passes of the hobby saw. Another plus is that the exhausts are bored out, which would be a real pain if you tried to do it on the kit part.

Comparing review parts to kit partsComparing review parts to kit parts detailed view

The exhausts that come in the Hasegawa kit look alright and would make an acceptable model but the Quickboost replacements are superior because of how they are bored out which makes for more realism, especially in a photo. These exhausts are very easy to install, and they just fit right in. They will also work well with any other JU88 A-4 kit as long as the kit part is close to looking like the Hasegawa assembly.

I highly recommend this product if you want a really superior looking model. Usually replacement parts need some work to get them installed properly but these exhausts pretty much just drop into place. Thanks to Quickboost.net, Aires Hobby Models and IPMS/USA for the chance to do this review.
