      Found in the net...
      Comet-4C and Sud Caravelle 1/144
      Interesting, Caravelle is really popular, suddenly.
      :-)
      Good to have a choice....

      So, I found the original photo of the Finnair Caravelle... the photo AModel is using....
      It looks like the Caravelle III dressed/liveried up as a Finnair `Super Caravelle (Caravelle Club's?)
      So it isn't really clear what version they are doing?

      I'm still waiting (patiently, waiting, and waiting, and waiting) for the promised 1/72 Yak-40. I've owned every Yak-40 model ever made, and not one of them has even come close to capturing the look of the real airplane. Which is bizarre, given how widespread it has been for so many decades.

      Where are they manufactured and how's the overall quality?

      Never put off for tomorrow what can dry overnight

      Amodel is from Ukraine. Overall quality depends on which kit you're talking about. Their older stuff was sometimes pretty rough, and accuracy varied from so-so to outstanding. Newer kits are better, as a rule, but still not 'box shakers' by any means.
