Beautifully moulded in light grey resin, Quick Boost has captured all of
the fine detail of the Wright R1820 Cyclone radial piston engine fitted
to the B-339 Brewster Buffalo.
The detail provided for the front of the engine has been faithfully
reproduced and is designed as an easy replacement for the Tamiya Buffalo
The front of engine crankcase is nicely detailed with the single bank of
cylinders easily visible and moulded in relief to the firewall. The
magnetos and other details for the crankcase are moulded integrally to
the engine to make this an easy drop in replacement.
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 detail
Highly Recommended even for novice modellers.
Thanks to Aires for the review sample
