The Italeri line was mostly in the 1:100th scale and was quite good---except they didn't provide pilot figures. Hachette has a new series out now in the same scale---also high quality and with pilot...

I bought the 1:72nd scale Chinese Badger a number of years ago---long before it showed up as an AF1 product. It's a very heavy and large beast but could use some more detail for a model of its size....

The Atlas Editions models were very crude and their Cant-1007Z had an especially bad scheme. Here's a link to an IXO Cant---same scale---which is much better:
