Quickboost now offers 1/32 scale builders a set of resin exhaust pipes for Hasegtawa's Ki 44 Tojo kits. They are accurately sized, cast in Quickboost's typical gray resin and feature remarkably thin sidewalls that capture the appearance of the Prototype's exhausts quite nicely.

Unlike the kit parts that require modelers to glue together two halves to end up with a single hollow pipe, the Quickboost exhausts are already hollow and ready to use without any assembly. They are cast so they may be painted while still on the casting block. After removing them from the casting block, they will fit in place with absolutely no modification required. Just remember, because they are resin, they will need to be attached with super glue or an epoxy adhesive.

This set is recommended. My thanks to Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
