Default Skyline vs. Small World

A while back someone had asked about the quality of Skyline models vs others. I have attached comparative photos of a BAC-111. The Braniff is by Skyline, Cambrian by Small World. Apologies for the poor focus.

I had asked about the quality of Skyline some time ago, thanks for the pictures.
Since asking, I have had a chance to have a look at the Skyline models at a shop near where I work. For me, thet look too "plasticky" (I know it's not a word, but it sums up how I would describe it). For the price they carry, I am not tempted. The Cambrian in the photo looks a better model. I know it's difficult to tell from a picture, but the Braniff looks too shiny for my personal taste.

Thanks for taking the time to post your photos,

I have seen the same 'display' in the 'local' retailer... my description of the Skylines would be more 'lumpy' as in less detailed than other offerings...

I like my planes shiny... thats the finish I could never replicate when modelling...

Still like me Skyline TWA 727 though..!!!

Small World is a different world altogether... for those I need a mortgage..
