IPMS/USA thanks the Aires team once again for sending us this simple, excellent item for use on a kit, in this case, a Quickboost engine exhaust replacement for the new-mold Revell 1/32 Spitfire Mk V through IX. And thanks to Phil and John for obtaining the sets for the team...

This set consists of two exhaust banks. This set is the oval/round openings version, and is perfectly designed to install in the Revell new mold 1/32 Spitfire Mk V through IX series.

Why buy? The kit items come in halves, split down the middle, and therefore have an almost impossible to fill seam which destroys the detail. Uhg.

Enter Quickboost...

The castings are perfectly formed, and have excellent weld detail along with deep exhaust throats. All you have to do is Primer, Paint on the pour stub, then remove with a knife or razor saw for assembly/installation preparation. These are designed to be installed after the model is assembled... I used Tamiya spray primer gray, painted afterwards with Vallejo steel, then weathered with steel and red-brown mixture, and a black wash with light dust for engine Lead exhaust staining.

Benefits: Little cutting, about as simple as aftermarket can get. This set is realistic out of the bag, and worth the asking price. THANK YOU to Aires Aerobonus for the review items... and thanks to Phil for forwarding and John approving my working these sets.
