Red fox vs Quinta studios


Recommended Posts

Don’t know much about Red Fox, but they look nice on the pics on their site, with some interesting subjects.

One point may answer your question anyway: it’s probably difficult to order directly from Quinta for the time being, given the sanctions enforced against Russia. So, it’s ordering from distributors’ stocks, and they must be dwindling since February 24th.

I just received 1/48 Su-25 set from Quinta and it is quite impressive. But again, I haven't seen RedFox stuff yet and as Hubert mentioned above, times has changed.

I have only two Quinta sets and none from Red Fox, so I can't judge the quality, but found Red Fox overly expensive, given the fact, that no seat belts are included in their sets.

Thanks Mike for asking this question it has been on my mind to. Very much doubt I’d buy the Quinta anyway for obvious reasons but has anyone looked at KitsWorld products. I believe they are UK based but not sure how the stack up against the competition. Specifically looking at the 32nd Mossie set…..

I used some KitsWorld parts on my recent Kai Phantom build for seat belts and other bits around the bang seats. I liked the belts, as they were good to work with, but other parts like handles were a nightmare, to soft, to stay proud. Bummer, because these parts are printed on both sides and would have made live easier.

No experience with the Red Fox products here, but I just finished my Tamiya Tomcat cockpit with the Quinta Studios product. I was quite pleased with the product and its relative ease of application, though to me the gray background was a little too light (Think Light Gull Gray vs. Dark Gull Gray).

I purchased the KitsWorld set for my Revell Tempest; the set was minimal (as was reflected in the price). To me, the pieces were soft as mentioned above. I would highly recommend the Quinta Studios stuff.
