Quickboost's 1/32 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190D Exhausts
will be available online from Squadron.com



Beautifully moulded in light grey resin, Quick Boost has captured beautifully all of the detail of the 190D Engine Exhausts as a direct replacement for Hasegawa’s kit parts.

The detail provided for the engine exhaust is a major improvement over the kit parts. The resin parts have nice relief moulding to represent the hollow openings of the exhaust pipes. The fine end capping to the exhausts is also nicely captured.

My only criticism is the way the pipes are moulded makes them a little difficult to separate from the moulding blocks so a little care and patience will be required.

The end result should be excellent and enhance the Hasegawa FW 190D kit nicely. Only basic modelling skills will be required to assemble this detail set.

Highly Recommended for intermediate modellers.

Thanks to Aires for the review sample
