I can't count the number of times I've read of someone complaining about the props or spinner on a later 1/32nd scale Messerschmitt.  Apparently, these specific parts are particularly hard to reproduce in styrene accurately (or so I've been led to believe). 

Enter Quickboost to the rescue with a beautifully cast spinner and props for the F-4 version of this classic aircraft.  This one comfortably fits either the Revell or the Hasegawa rendition of this aircraft and may even prove a good fit for the Twentieth Century Toys replica.

As always with this manufacturer, the parts are molded in an absolutely flawless grey resin which captures every nuance masterfully and is also easy to carve and prep.  I think it took me all of ten minutes to clean and assemble my sample, and it is going to look VERY good on my otherwise acceptable kit.  I still find myself marveling at how the industry has improved since I started this hobby some half a century ago.  Companies like Quickboost have become an integral part of this improvement, offering a huge range of excellent detail and correction parts at competitive prices.  This example is just as lovely as every other Quickboost product I have purchased.  I can recommend it without hesitation.

My thanks to Quickboost for making this wonderful product and to IPMS/USA for a chance to add this to my own project.  Terrific!
