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

 

FirstLook

 

Beautifully moulded in light grey resin, Quick Boost has moulded the detail of the Henschel Hs129B-2 radio bay in a quick fit panel.

The detail provided for the radio bay panel has been exceptionally reproduced as far as the limited 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 rear radio bay panel. The radio face panel has all of the knobs, switches and dials moulded in beautiful relief that has been crisply cast.

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 panel door looks as though it has the engine starter crank nicely moulded to it.

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
