Quickboost is known for its quick, easy and very well done add-ons to kits. The set reviewed here is a set of six air scoops present on the Trumpeter 1/32 MiG-21 series.

One problem with a lot of kits is that the many of the cooling, air, etc. scoops come in two pieces. To get them correct, you need to glue them together and then sand both the inside and outside for a good fit. On this MiG kit, there are six such scoops. Quickboost has a great time saving idea. They have all of the scoops with a nice recessed depth and no seams. You simply remove the scoops, a light sanding to remove the seam and make it fit and glue in place. It provides the correct cross section for the opening- no worrying about sanding a seam flat. Also, there are no problems on the inside as they are good also.

One thing I never seem to have enough of is modeling time. Quickboost provides a great time saver in this kit by making perfect air scoops without all the hassle of filling and sanding. Recommended! My thanks to Quickboost, Aires and IPMS/USA for the review samples.
