Quickboost's 1/72 scale MIG-21F-13 Fishbed C Air Intake
will be available online from Squadron.com

 

FirstLook

 

Beautifully moulded in light grey resin, Quick Boost has captured the nose engine intake ring and radar cone perfectly.

Designed for the recent 1/72 scale Revell release, the detail set is a direct replacement for the kit parts and no cutting or modification of the kit is required.

The nose intake on the MIG-21 has a very fine and sharp lip, and this is something that cannot be easily capture in injection moulded plastic but is easily captured in resin. The end result should add some nice fine detail to the kit.

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

Now if only they would manufacture the nose intake for the MIG-21PF and MF/BIS in 1/48 scale.

Highly Recommended for any modeller.

Thanks to Aires for the review sample
