Quickboost is a company that specializes in drop-in resin replacement parts to enhance the appearance of your models. Being "drop-in" replacements, it is very rare you need you modify the original parts, hence the "quick" name.

In this case I am reviewing the exhaust engine for the well-known P-51D Mustang in 1/48 scale from Airfix.

As you can see from the pictures the resin parts have hollow ends which would look much better than the plastic parts. The resin parts also have no mold part lines, as the plastic parts do.

The resin parts are cleanly casted, free of bubbles or any other defect. They are protected by two resin "walls" on each end of the cast. I would suggest removing those walls before removing the exhausts themselves.

This simple drop-in part would make a nice kit, into an even nicer one.

Highly recommended.

I would like to thank Aires/Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
