Quick Boost has released P-38 Lightning’s Engine inserts
in a quick fit panel for both the 1/48 and 1/72 scale Academy kits.
As both detail sets are identical in 1/48 and 1/72 I decided to review
The parts are beautifully cast in grey resin.
Detail provided for the engine panel has been faithfully
reproduced and is designed as a straight drop into the Academy kits
after some minor panel surgery to remove the side engine bay panel.
After carefully painting the detail a wash with a dark watercolour or
oils will give a convincing three dimensional effect.
The end result should be excellent, enhancing the kit nicely. Basic
modelling skills will be required to assemble these detail sets.
Highly Recommended for intermediate modellers.
Thanks to Aires for the review sample
