Quickboost's 1/48 Scale Do 335 engine
will be available online from Squadron.com




Beautifully moulded in light grey resin, Quick Boost has captured all of the fine detail of the Arrow’s rear Engine.

The detail provided for the engine block has been faithfully reproduced and is designed as a straight drop into the Tamiya kit after some minor panel surgery to remove the rear engine bay panels.

The main drive shaft, engine bearers, radiator cooling pipe and exhaust pipes are also provided and moulded separately.

The front and rear firewalls, and engine bay floor is a cast along with the engine in a solid one piece block and may require some counter weight to prevent a tail sitter.

Some fine scalpel work is required to remove some mould flash at the front and rear of the engine but overall a simple task. The end result should be add some nice extra detail to the kit.

Basic modelling skills will be required to assemble this detail set.

Highly Recommended for intermediate modellers.

Thanks to Aires for the review sample
