IMO asking about the brand is the wrong question. All brands have great moulds and not-so-great moulds. All brands have good QC and then some models that show up broken. Basically, anyone that tells you that one brand is always better than another is not giving you the full story, and I would take their opinions with a grain of salt.

Just as a couple of examples, I much prefer IF200's A320 series over Gemini/JC. But Gemini/JC wins out on the A350 for me. Others may have different opinions, because there are some features that might be dealbreakers for me that they do not care about, and vice versa. Ultimately it is up to you to decide what flaws you can live with, since very few models are perfect.

The best thing to do is look for comparison threads on here which will give you an idea of the consensus for certain models. I would not focus on the brand too much. Especially considering things like the below....

JFox is Inflight just under a different name. The moulds are the same.

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
