There is no good answer to the popular question of “What is the best model car kit brand?”. Tamiya is my preferred brand/company personally, and it’s also the general consensus pick among most modelers. That being said, it’s hard to give a blanket recommendation, because every company has released a very large number of model kits through the years, and there are bound to be some poor quality kits. That’s why it’s vital to research each kit individually, read the reviews, and then determine if it’s the right fit for you.
