This is the second Quickboost piece that I have acquired for my 1/48 Eduard Spitfire Mk.IXc build. The other is the cockpit seat.

Quickboost has produced a detailed resin cockpit door that provides details that are missing even in the excellent Eduard kit. This is not to diminish the Eduard kit that has been reviewed by Bret Green as the definitive (his opinion) 1/48 Spitfire kit. In the photos, obviously, the Quickboost piece is still attached to the casting block. The Quickboost web link to the picture brings out more detail than my photo. A word of caution - there seems to be a size difference with the Eduard door being larger. I won't know about final fit until I get to the build.

I highly recommend this highly visible replacement part. Thanks to Quickboost for providing these parts and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review this item.
