I had problems with the HobbyBoss hull, i.e. they tend to be banana-like if built as waterline model. I had that problem with two models built from the HobbyBoss kit. Therefore I bought for the next model the Aoshima kit, but I have not yet built this one.
I am no expert for the class to judge, which is better. The small details probably have to replaced anyway, e.g. the anti-aircraft guns.
