I thought about this from another thread that link to a review of Trumpeter 1/32 F14 saying it was the best F14 out there....I know there 1/32 Me262 is really nice

My first grip with Trumpeter is they are way overprices...

...but excluding prices

What Trumpeter kit are real gems the best out there of that subject...

Have they released their 1/32 Jaguar yet? I recall photos of the prototype being shown and it looked damned impressive- can't answer for accuracy though. Also, I don't recall having heard any major squawks about their 1/32 MiG-27 or Su-25, but maybe I just haven't been listening that well on those.

From what I've seen, their 1/48 262s hold up pretty nicely as well.

two 32nd Corsairs, a 32nd Swordfish, and a 48th P-40B. My favorite, and a really nice kit in my opinion, was the Swordfish. Went together really well, nicely detailed, and looks really good when done.

A stunningly nice and accurate kit, The 48th is also nice, albeit scarred by heavy riveting.

The 48th Hawker Sea Hawks are also very nice (the Hobby Boss 72nd version too).

The Gannett is not too bad, and reportedly better than the Revell kit in shape.

As a lover of FAA subjects, I am very happy about that!
