Overview of available models
This part is not meant to list every kit or variant of kit every made,
the purpose better described as offering the interested modeller an
overview of which planes and helicopter that have been made as plastic
kits. Nor does it aim to go in to detail about every kit's pros and
cons, the general rule that certain manufactures makes more accurate
kits than others applies in this field of plastic modelling as in all
others (this could perhaps be described as the more expensive the
kit(and the newer the tooling) is , the more accurate it will be - as
always there are exceptions to that rule....).
