Beautifully moulded in light grey resin, Quick Boost has captured all of
the fine detail of the B-26C Marauder Pratt and Whitney R28-43C Engines.
The detail provided for the front of the engine has been faithfully
reproduced and is designed as a straight drop in replacement for the
Airfix B-26 Engines. 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 is moulded integrated into the firewall but is not
visible and saves performing major surgery to the kit. You simply glue
the engines into the cowl and fit to the front of the nacelles.
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 engines. Basic modelling skills will be required to assemble
this detail set.
Highly Recommended even for novice modellers.
Thanks to Aires for the review sample
