1/144 Compare CafeReo vs F-Toys A7 & F4B

1/144 Compare CafeReo vs F-Toys A7 & F4B
"I just discovered the F-toys A-7 and F-4B are uses a diferent tool from previous R-Lai F-4 and and CafeReo A-7 ... they are more delicate lines

The fitting of these prebuilt items are not as high quality as Takara FAOW, but it can be improved with a little effort.

...I tested the removal of the paint from the F-Toys with "rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol" as I did with Cafereo... The paint came off, although not as easily as with the CafeReo aircraft. The paint of a-7 is not gloss and needed some scrubbing to remove..

The fuselage of Cafereo A-7 looks fatter than F-toys... I don´t know which is the more correct..?
The canopy of F-toys make more easily removed (opened)"
F-4 of Rlai have cut wing tips making the eaiser for folded on a deck.., the F-4 of F-toys does not have the cut wing ...
