My advise in Cold War planes is this:
For Harriers, Phantoms, and Skyhawks go for HM.
For Mirages, either go for HM or Falcon Models. There are other manufactures but their quality is below average.
For MiGs, the only good quality manufacturer is HM but it has only MiG-21 and MiG-15. You may find MiG-29s in Witty Sky Guardians but they must be rare now as they stopped production. For more variety, check out other manufacturers but again their quality is below average. Same thing goes for the Nighthawks.
I agree with AM, that you are basically going to end up with a variety of manufactures in order to find the planes you want. If you visit this link you can see what happens when you narrow you search by plane types. We have over 1000 1:72 models available from about 30 different manufacturers, so it's really hard to say who is best because it depends on each individual collectors criteria. All the models list are diecast with the exception of the Easy Model brand. These are plastic.
Thanks, Ahmed. I am a strange guy. I would like to collect cold war jet fighters/bombers that are either discontinued or that are still in service. Thus, Harriers, Phantoms, Skyhawks, Nighthawks, Mirages, MIGs, etc. I am looking for good quality diecast ones. The scale can be 1:72 or it can be a little bit bigger or smaller.
Steve, thanks for your input sir. I have definitely become a bigger fan of military planes. Any other producers in the military diecast plane market? Or is Hobby Master the only one?
