Just the two items from Quickboost this month and both are aimed at the Tamiya excellent 1/32 Spitfire Mk IX. The exhaust pipes look very good and include the seam seen on the real thing, not sure about them being oval though! The gun barrels don't look half bad either.

Changing its title from ‘Military Aircraft Monthly’, ‘Model Aircraft’ has now found a blueprint to meet the needs of a readership interested in both modelling, and real aircraft. First and foremost it’s a modellers’ magazine, and therefore will mix kit builds and conversions with historical and reference pieces, but with the focus always on information and images that will be of benefit to those building in scale. Regular authors include Dr. Alfred Price, Jack Herris, whose WWI articles couple in-depth research with a seemingly inexhaustible database of historical photographs, Nico Braas, a well known author and historian, whose archive material on post-war and ‘classic’ subjects has excited considerable comment, and Robin Polderman, whose astonishing photo-shoots cover aviation events worldwide

The 1.48 cockpit set for the Hobby boss A-7E Corsiar II and the wheel bays for the Hasegawa F-22A Raptor look a must buy if you have the two kits in question.
