In my opinion, Quickboost is the best resin caster in the business. Their products are flawlessly cast, very detailed and accurate. This set is no exception.

The Revell G-10, on the other hand, has a lot more faults than this resin set can make up for and personally I think it would be wasted. I would rather use this high quality set on the Fine Molds kits. However, if you must build the Revell kit this set will definitely help.

The Quickboost tail wheel has good rim and shaft detail apart from being of the taller variety, where as the Revell item is like a doughnut on a stick by comparison. The Quickboost scoop has a very accurate shape and a nice big hole at the front. The Revell scoop has a some what rounded rear end and no hole at the front.

Both items are definitely superior to the Revell parts.

Recommended.

Thanks to Quickbboost for the review sample
