Quickboost is part of Aires and is aptly named in that it gives a "quick boost" to your models with drop in replacements. The parts in this set represent the exhaust shrouds on the sides of both engines. The set is as usual, simple to use. Remove from the pour stubs and clean as needed.

Comparing the kit parts and the Quickboost set shows where the resin replacements shine. The exhaust shrouds are meant to be hollow tubes. Quickboost nicely represents this with excellent hollowed-out ends and the kit does not. There are several pictures showing this and the effect is noticeable once installed. And installation could not be easier- they have the notch built in to make sure they are installed correctly, and they drop into place.

Highly recommended to all fans of the Pe-2. They make the kit look better, are simple to install, and are very reasonably priced.

My thanks to Aires/Quickboost for the set and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review it
