Thanks to Aires/Quickboost for providing more of their prolific output for us to review, and to IPMS leadership for sending it my way.

These are ridiculously simple additions to the basic Airfix BI/III merlin engine kit; they are drop in replacements for the kit air scoops, and as such have hollowed-out intakes in place of the kit items, which have the injection point where the hollow intake should be.

This is a great place to put the injection point, as it makes it blemish -free on the sides of the intakes.... If Airfix had over-engineered the intakes to have the injection points on the sides, along with two halves for the scoops, it would about be a nightmare to assemble correctly, and would have resulted in wailing and gnashing of teeth...

Quickboost once again saves us AMS modelers from ourselves... remove from the pour stubs, and glue in place.

A worthwhile purchase, highly recommended... Thanks to Aires/Quickboost for these items!
