Here is another detail set from the folks at Aires/Quickboost: Stabilizers for the WWII Japanese Army Fighters Ki-61 or Ki-100 Tony.

This detail set will work with ANY of the 1/48 Hasegawa Ki-61 Hein "Tony" or Ki-100 kits on the market today. All of these aircraft shared the same basic airframe, and this detail set will work with them all.

As shown in the photos, this Quickboost detail set has four resin parts for the horizontal stabilizers on these fighters. The builder must cut the parts from the resin, and remove a little flash before gluing the flaps in place. This is a very quick, easy, and inexpensive way to give your model that little extra detail.

The detail of these parts is on par with what you get in the kit. I recommend this detail set to you if you want an easy way to drop the flaps on your next 1/48 Hein project - especially of you don't own a razor saw to cut the original kit parts that.

Thanks to Aires and Quickboost and IPMS/USAfor the review sample!
