Quickboost's 1/48 Scale P-39N/Q Engine
will be available online from Squadron.com



Want to add something special to your Eduard P-39 without spending too much money? Try a Quick Boost engine.

There are four parts to this set. FOUR!? Yes, the engine assembly is a beautifully cast and flawless. The exhaust stubs on this part and the other side are beautiful and thin. The only other parts included are the access panel and the inboard panel that this panel attaches to.

The only negative aspect of this set is that the exhaust stacks that attach to the engine are very fragile.

This set should only require minimal cleanup. The instruction sheet is the on a piece of cardboard that shows where the parts go.

Due to the low cost and the excellent detail, I highly recommend this upgrade set to anyone who wants to add a little extra to their model.

The set can be obtained directly from http://www.quickboost.net  or at http://www.modelchoice.net .

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Aires for the review sample
