Recently, Airfix has upped its game with the release of several 1/72 scale aircraft kits with new tooling and featuring excellent detail. One such kit is their Hawker Typhoon Mk Ib. Despite Airfix's excellent out-of-box detail, aftermarket detail manufacturers have tossed their hats into the ring to make an excellent kit even better.

Among them is Quickboost -- bringing their improved engine exhausts. Comparing fairly closely to the kit parts, the Quickboost versions offer the feature of hollowed out exhaust ports - saving the modeler time and stray cuts in the kit parts and fingers from errant drill bits or hobby knives.

Quickboost's mold quality and fidelity of detail is exceptional, and the hollowed out stacks make a subtle contribution to improving this legendary 1/72 RAF tank killer. Highly recommended for the braille scale modeler wanting to really trick out his Typhoon Ib.

Thanks to Quickboost for the sample parts and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review.
