Why i regard Fujimi 1/72 Phantoms as one of the best...1)numerous markings included, esp British birds. 2)above average tooling. 3)affordable price(S$18-25). Forget about Fujimi's 1/48(more like 1/50) subjects. Those are CRAP. Look at the 'sofa' seat from their Skyhawk range.
IMHO, Heller 1/48 subjects such as Mirage 2000C, Super Etendard, French Jaguar are the only game in town. ESCI/Italeri's Mirage 2000 is based on the prototype. I can't say much about Hobbycraft coz i classify their kits as 'masak masak' LOL!
You cant do much on those decals since it has aged(which explains why it shatters easily). The Heller Alphajet was produced in the late 70s/early 80s. The only way to protect is to spray a layer of Future(floor wax) or clear coat.
