While a lot of attention has been focuses on aftermarket offerings for Tamiya's growing line of 1/32 Spitfire kits, Quickboost has release a set of resin gun barrels that are designed to replace those found in Hasegawa Spitfire kits. They are direct replacements for kit parts #CC3 and #CC16, and the detail is crisp and delicate. The castings, like all other Quickboost resin parts are blemish free and offer detail superior to that found in the kit parts. The gun barrels provide hollow ends, fine recessed details and delicate rivets. No clean up is required and there are no pinholes to worry about. They are easily removed from the casting block with a #11 blade and should be attached with super glue or epoxy cement.

This Detail Set is highly recommended to anyone who wants to enhance the detail of a 1/32 Spitfire built from a Hasegawa kit.

My thanks to IPMS/USA, Quickboost.net and Aires Hobby Models for the opportunity to review this detail set.
