Default Quality of JFox Model Airliners

Can anyone provide any insight as to the quality of 1/200 scale models from JFox Model Airliners ? I've never heard of them, but they will be releasing a C-130 model in the near future that I was interested in and wanted to gauge other collector's opinions and thoughts on this manufacturer.

The item I was specifically looking at was item # JF-C130-004, US Air Force Lockheed C-130, Yokota AB, 74-2062 (1:200). Usual price point on most sites for this model is about $100-110 USD, which is the most I've ever seen for a C-130 in this scale.

JFox actually has a few pics on their main Facebook page of this particular model. It looks....decent. The props in the pics they provide definitely look a bit wonky, for lack of a better term.

Any thoughts and opinions on them are appreciated.

Isn't Jfox like discount IF200 ?

From what I've read, there's alot of whining (not about this particular model but Jfox in general) about nose shape, engine pylon shape and poor QC.

Yeah, their C-130 models looks wonky in general. Doesn't look like it would be worth their asking prices.

Have to admit I've got several of their 747’s and they look absolutely fine to me. I'm not rivet counter, but the shape looks good, the quality is good, the printing detail is up there with other manufacturers. They come with fixed down undercarriage and a stand.

Aren't they pretty much the same as BBOX and AV200?
