In my youth I bought almost every 1:1200 Comet Authenticast that was made but I subsequently bought very few Superiors before giving them up to focus on the German made models by Neptun, Navis and others. So I can't give an opinion about Superiors.
But among the Comet Authenticast models available up until 1961 when the company ceased business, I would say that their Japanese ship models were generally their best. In particular their FUSO, NACHI, TONE, AMAGIRI and HATSUHARU were, among others, very good.
While not the subject here, it should be noted that Comet's wartime line of 1:500 scale Teacher scale models were excellent. In particular the all metal 1:500 models of post war ships that Comet made for the Defense Department during the 1950s and early 1960's were quite exceptional.
