What Are The Best Models?

Tue Mar 25, 2008 5:45 pm

I have a few models but want to build up my collection. I have a Magic A380, Herpa A346, and Dragonwings B777 and B744. They are all 1:400 and the quality is pretty good on all. Some of the other aircraft types by these manufactorers seem to vary so can someone tell me with is consistantly the best quality manufactorer? I don't have any Gemini Jets models, what are they like?

Also I remember having a bookmark for a database of all the models made by every maufactorer. I don't have the bookmark any more so could someone tell me what it is?

Cheers

Having both Herpa and Gemini Jets models I can safely say that in my opinion, the quality put into the Gemini Jet models is much better than that of Herpa models. Even the landing gear of my Gemini Jet models is much more detailed than my Herpa models.

They are a good manufacturer of high quality models, normally 1:200 size. I recommend their A380 and A380F. In fact, their whole range is good. Their Concorde models are also superb.
