New Review: PBY Catalina exhaust

Recommended Posts

Product Image

Quickboost has produced replacement exhaust parts for the Academy 1/72 PBY Catalina kits.  The resin replacement is a simple drop-in for the kit's plastic parts.  There is no modification required to the kit parts to use these resin replacements.

A side by side evaluation (see photos) indicates a replacement of superior detail that will provide a more accurate rendition of the exhaust assemblies.  Check your references for the appropriate set to use (some models of the Cat had a straight pipe exhaust).  Be sure to wash the parts in soapy water to remove mold release agents and prime prior to using your favorite modeling paints.  Also, remember that you must use epoxy or CA glue to attach these parts to styrene plastic.

Highly recommended.

Thanks to the IPMS Reviewer Corps and Quickboost for the opportunity to review this item.
