I started off by collecting GeminiJets thinking that they are the "best" in terms of precision and quality, but I was so mistaken when I have received my first inFlight and JFox models.
But JC wings offer so many options in terms of number of models they release every time that other manufacturers don't.
I answered to a similar question on another thread...
Overall, I find JC Wings models to be quite good. In my opinion, their quality and craftsmanship is comparable to Inflight 200 and their associated brands.
However, there are a few JC Wings releases which are not that great, for example their 762 and 763’s.
I think, it’s pretty much the same with Inflight 200 models. Some of their models are a joke, for example Inflight 732’s, 721‘s and 722’s. Way too many obvious mistakes to point out on these.
On the other hand [in my opinion], Inflight A330’s, A343’s, A319, 320’s and 321’s are the best of the best!
So it’s a hit and miss, some releases being awful and others being excellent.
Over the years, I’ve learned that no model release is perfect, no matter if it’s an Inflight200 and their associated brands, or a JC Wings, Gemini or others.
All of them make mistakes and errors, some bigger than others.
So my advice is to always wait, follow this forum on collectors opinions and discussions,
Compare for yourself the newly released model, with the actual airplane that’s being reproduced.
This will help you form an opinion which will determine if it’s really worth spending your hard earned money on the new release or not.
I hope this helps.
