I presently have over 6,000 models in my collection covering all scales.
Specifically to 1/43, I find that every manufacturer makes, or did make, good models and also bad ones and that includes Motor City, Madison, Conquest, Western, Forty Third Avenue, Brooklin, Neo, Goldvarg, BOS, MiniMarque, etc. To me the model is the reason I even have an interest in buying in the first place and then is the image one that I find acceptable in the second. To me, I find it hard to believe that one would just eliminate an entire line because they assume everything from that manufacturer is bad. Just my 2 cents worth.
