Quickboost has provided the modeler with replacement parts for the Academy P-38J kit. Cast in their standard gray resin the parts had no flash and are easily removed with a razor saw. The Quickboost parts are direct replacements for the Academy parts C10 and D4. The difference between the parts lies with the air scoops on top; on the Academy parts the scoops were molded solid, while the Quickboost scoops are cast hollowed out.

For modeler who is uncomfortable with drilling out these scoops the Quickboost.net parts are perfect and in that regard I can recommend their use. I want to thank IPMS/USA and Quickboost for the opportunity to do this review.
