My comment that I posted on the video (we've already had this discussion here ):

Asking which brand is the best is completely the wrong question to ask in the first place.

Phoenix 777's have historically been very good. Their A350's nose looks nothing like the real thing. Gemini probably has the best printing and color matching in the industry, but their A320 is an awful mould. Aeroclassics has the best A320 mould by far, but they often get their colors too dark. (And how can you possibly rate a manufacturer objectively when you only have one model?) Aviation400 has the best A350, but they've also made color goofs. JCWings shares a lot of moulds with Gemini - but not all - their 787 is tops, but Gemini has an inferior one. Herpa is such a niche player in 1:400 as to be irrelevant. Etc. etc.

The point is: you really have to review individual moulds and models - anyone that claims any particular manufacturer is 'better' than another is just fanboying and I wouldn't take their opinion seriously.

My holy grails:

Sun Country 727-200 late 1990's colors
Yamal & Interjet SSJ-100
Kenya Airways 737-800 New colors
Alrosa Tu-154 latest colors / Tu-134 old colors
