I have had three bad experiences with models made in the Philippines. One company is "emodelairplanes.com". They are selling 1/100th scale models of the Boeing 2707 SST in various liveries.
I bought two of them, one in the Northeast Yellowbird, and another in the Northeast blue-stripe scheme.
There were vast differences in the two models, and the colors were generic yellow or blue, but not the true matched colors used by the airline. One model had the rudder painted on, the other did not. One model had 5 doors per side, the other had 4 with different window spacing.
The other Philippine model is a Delta CV
-880. It is just awful. I tried to sell it on Ebay and could not get one bid.
I own two Bader models. One is excellent: an Eastern Airlines 747-100 in 1/100th scale - very detailed and very accurate.
The other is pretty rough: a Northeast CV
-880 Yellowbird. It was received damaged. It also has a large cargo door painted onto the front, which never existed during the aircraft's days with NE.
