Thanks once again to Quickboost for providing IPMS USA review items; I'm always amazed they find more to detail out, even on the most complex of today's models...

In this case, Quickboost provides a simple replacement for the closed kit drogue chute housing. Three parts; two clamshells, and one drogue chute container. I painted the two clamshell doors RLM 02 on the interior, a medium green on the outside, and yellow/tan on the chute. Detail is superlative; there are even actuator cables and a lock loop on the back of the chute container. (yep, it looks like an ear of corn). Inside the clamshells are open bays and rivet/cable details. You could spend hours doing this from scratch; someone at Quickboost did!

This was an opportunity for me to try something on an already finished kit; In this case, my review Mig 23 from a couple of months ago. I took the previously installed kit drogue housing bullet, gently bent it sideways, and got a clean break from the model. Installation was simple as superglue and a bit of accelerator to install all three parts in the chute housing. The results look great!

Another fine product from our friends at Quickboost; keep them coming... and Thanks!
