Beautifully moulded in light grey resin, Quick Boost has
captured all of the fine detail of the Wildcat Engine.
The detail provided for the front of the engine has been very faithfully
reproduced and is designed as an easy replacement for the Tamiya F4F-4
Engine. The front of engine crankcase is superbly detailed with the two
banks of cylinders easily visible. The magnetos and other details for
the crankcase are also provided and moulded separately.
The rear of the engine crankcase is also provided as this is visible
through the wheel well and the moulding on this casting is excellent.
You simply glue the two halves together and replace the kit engine.
The only details not provided are the pushrods and wiring harness and
these can be easily added from plastic rod and fine solder wire.
The end result should be stunning and much more accurate and detailed
the kit engine. Basic modelling skills will be required to assemble this
Highly Recommended even for novice modellers.
Thanks to Aires for the review sample
