The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  The prop blades are very nicely rendered and the hub is loaded with fine detailing which you can see in the photo above.  You get enough blades and hubs for both engines.  You also get an alignment tool made of resin that will help you correctly set the pitch on each blade.  The hubs are a 2 piece unit.

The blades are well done and the hubs are very nicely detailed and a pleasant improvement over the kit parts.  The kit parts have straight spines (blades?) on the hub, but the spines on these Quickboost hubs are curved to give a spiral effect. The poseable prop blades will permit you to easily have feathered blades on one of your engines if you chose to go the battle damage route in a diorama situation. 

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.
