This is another of Quickboost's more-or-less drop-in replacements for kit parts. In this case, it's the exhausts for Hobby Boss's Mi-2 Hoplite helicopter kit. The parts in the kit are hollowed out for you already, but the walls of the tubes are a bit thick. The replacement exhausts from Quickboost are direct replacements for the kit parts, but with thinner walls. They fit right into the sides of the cowlings as if, well, they were made for them. They also appear to be slightly more accurate in shape than the kit parts. The kit parts are oval shaped, whereas the prototype exhausts (and the QB parts) have a slightly flattened side to them. This set is definitely recommended as a time saver.

My thanks go to Aires Hobby Models and Quickboost for providing the parts for a rather esoteric subject and to IPMS/USA for allowing me to review them.
