Product Article by Steve Bamford on Nov 24 2010


This latest release from QuickBoost features a complete set of resin Wire Covers for the F1M2 Pete from Hasegawa.

The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  In case you do not know what these are for, let me explain.  The F1M2 Pete was a Japanese bi-plane floatplane  built between 1936 and 1944.  The plane had wire "X" rigging for added strength between the upper and lower wings.  At the end of each of these wires (where they connected to the upper and lower wings), there were these  wire covers.  

Adding these to your F1M2 Pete would be a very noticeable and positive improvement to the detail and accuracy of your model as these are in a very noticeable location on the 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.
