Quickboost has added the seat for the P-51D Mustang to their line of resin aircraft accessories. This latest addition is molded in a grayish resin, smooth, seamless and bubble-free. The seat is molded in one piece and is easy to remove from the mold block.

The package doesn't state that it is for any particular kit, so it should work well with any of the P-51D Mustang kits. I compared it with the Tamiya kit's seat. Talk about a noticeable difference - the detail on the Quickboost part is outstanding. From the photos you can see that the Quickboost seat has the belts molded , and you can almost feel the seat material in the cushion under the belts. You will definitely want to have the canopy open for this.

I very highly recommend this product if you want a really nice and detailed seat. All that you need to do is cut off the molding block and drop it into the cockpit with a little CA glue. Quickboost can be really proud of the detail that went into it. Thanks to Quickboost and IPMS USA for letting me do this review.
