Quickboost just keeps adding to their great line of quality resin aircraft accessories. The latest addition is for the Academy P-40 Warhawk. It is up to their usual standards; molded in grayish resin, smooth, seamless and bubble free. One thing of note is that they are really easy to remove from the mold block because of a nice perforation; they just popped right off of the mold block.

The doors that come in the Academy kit are okay but just lack the level of detail on the inside of the covers that the Quickboost covers have. The Quickboost covers are superior and add just that much more realism to the finished kit. The resin parts are very easy to install and can be used on any other brand kit that is similarly molded.

I highly recommend this product if you want a really superior looking model. Usually replacement parts need some work to get them installed properly but these covers are pretty much just drop into place. Thanks to Quickboost and IPMS USA for the chance to do this review.
