    So my brother and mom are in Florida right now and they promised to bring me back a model. So they gave me a list of 4, only 2 of which I'm considering, all 1/48.

    Eduard Fw 190F-8 (Looks REALLY good, I'll probably get this one)
    Arii Spitfire Mk VIII (Has PTO Markings so that would be neat)

    Now, I'm only assuming it's Arii, because my brother said over the phone AMII, and I can't find a company in existence under that name. Is it any good? I couldn't find an reviews on it other than just ones that were like "I used the well known Arii/Otaki kit...".

    Thanks guys!

    The Arii/Otaki Spitty is not a bad kit at all but if an Eduard F-8 is on the table it's no contest!!:D

    Yeah, I figured that would be the answer haha. Ok, I'll go with the F-8, thanks Wayne.

    Wayne beat me to it Cory! I'd definitely go with the Eduard '190, but the Arii Spit, far as i know, is the Otaki kit. It's plain and simple, but not bad at all, bearing in mind when it was first made. It looks the part, but IIRC, lacks the 'gull wing' underneath the wing trailing edge root.
