Quickboost's 1/48 scale Henschel Hs129B-2 Cannon Panel
will be available online from Squadron.com




Beautifully moulded in light grey resin, Quick Boost has moulded the detail of the 1/48 scale Henschel Hs129B-2 canon bay in a quick fit panel.

The detail provided for the cannon bay panel has been faithfully reproduced as far as the limited photographs and cutaway drawings that I have show and has been designed as a straight drop into the Hasegawa kit after some minor panel surgery to remove the side canon bay panel.

After carefully painting the detail a wash with a dark watercolour will give a great three-dimensional effect. A new panel door is included to replace the kit area that will be destroyed in the removal process.

The end result should be excellent and enhance the kit nicely. Intermediate modelling skills will be required to assemble this detail set as some kit surgery is required.

Highly Recommended for intermediate modellers.

Thanks to Aires for the review sample
