Re: Which Manufacturers?
It all depends on the plane. HM's Kate, A-1, P-26 and Buffalo---to name only a few----are great but its Fury is flawed, its Stearman was based on a bad kit and stinks, its FW-190 is a fine tooling, ruined by bad mottling and other marking mistakes, etc. In like manner, Witty's Javelin is awful but its Zeros are the best. And so it goes.
