Review by Steve Bamford on July 17 2009


This latest release from QuickBoost features resin Cowling and Exhausts  for the Seafire FR. 46/47 from Airfix. 

Both items in this set are very finely done.  The cowling has very delicate rivet details along with a tiny scoop that is hollowed out....how they can do this I have no idea.  The exhausts are also hollow and full of delicate detail including fluted ends.  These will be a noticeable improvement over the kit parts.

The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  

If you're building the 1/48 Seafire FR. 46/47 from Airfix, then this resin Cowling and Exhaust set is well worth picking up as this area is one of those prominent areas on the Seafire that really shows on the finished model. 

You can purchase these and other fine resin detail items directly from QuickBoost


I would like to thank QuickBoost for providing me with this review sample.
