I like mine wheels up and without propellers so my list could be shorter than others. For F-14's everyone and their mother will say Century. F-15's...not to much choice so it's Dragon for me. F-4...I'd say Corgi but only until Hobby Master's comes out with theirs.

In my opinion:

- F 14: CW is the best, but Force of Valor do it same mould and less price. So CW is first choice and FOV is second and valued choice for u.
- F 15: Absolutely is Witty Wings
- P 51 Mustang: Dragon Wings
- F4U Corsair: I think u should wait for Hobby Master release it.
- P 47
- P 38: Corgi is ok
- Fw 190
- Spitfire
- Bf 109
- F 4 Phantom: Hobby Master is only choice for this.... Corgi no chance to compared.

I saw a Gemini phantom today at modelzone, and it was awesome! The only thing that stopped me buying was that I didn't know whether or not Gemini were diecast at the time.

I was sent the wrong model. I have the Sky Guardians (I think that is Witty Wings, but not sure) F-14 version of the same squadron. It actually looks pretty good, and was more expensive than the FA-18E, so Im keeping it.
