Welcome to the forum !!!!
In my opinion, Phoenix, Gemini and Aeroclassics has superior quality, Dragon Wings, JC Wings, Big Bird, Aviation 400 Jet-X are also good, but it is very hard to tell you what is the best manufacturer, variation from moulds, printing and other minor details occurs with all producers!!!
I would say that you started with a good model.... I would suggest to search some threads on this forum about quality and others opinions to get a better knowledge on the subject!!!

From pictures Gemini appears to look very good although I have yet to see one in person.
Thank you and any help is greatly appreciated!
