Hellwarrior, take care when painting the Bandai kits. Here is what I have heard:
1. Take care if you are painting and then assembling. The parts fit is very snug and paint in the join areas can cause the parts not to fit correctly.
2. It is better to use acrylic paint as some enamel brands (I do not know which ones) have been known to eat the plastic, especially the softer plastic used as joints for moving parts. Definitely do not use a lacquer.
As for quality and accuracy, Bandai is supposed to be top of the line. Even though they are a snap kit, do not mistake them for a build and play type that Revell makes. Molding is fine and crisp, instructions can be confusing for a first timer, but once you figure out the sequence it is easy enough. Take care to notice the little arrows they indicate which way a part faces.
Revell ' s new kits are okay, but are no where near the molding quality of bandai. I just completed the lvl 2 force awakens tie fighter (not the build and play, no lights and sound) and while it is a decent kit the molding detail was soft and the parts break down caused some big seems.
Finemolds kits are great if you are wanting glue and paint kits, which, who doesn't? Unfortunately no longer being made unless Revell decides to Re kit some of the 1/72 kits like they did the 1/48 ones.
