Re: Best of the Comet/Autheticast/Superior models
My choice of Best rendering would be the ZARA Heavy cruiser, which compared nicely to Delphin’s offerings. Incidentally, she was half of my first order in 1970. Still looks good after 50 years, though needs some TLC to the main mast
On a related note, IMHO, AQUITANIA, with replaced masts, is the best Tri-Ang Big ship. I think bridge window decals would make it comparable to many 1250 ships.
I think that many in our community would agree that makers such as Neptun, Spider Navy, Seavee and a handful of others represent the apex of the model-producers mountain. I also suspect that many collectors, especially in North America, got their start collecting Comet/Authenticast/Superior models. Now, I'd like people to chime in please... What Comet/Superior/Authenticast model was/is the best with regard to casting quality, fidelity of detail, and overall best "look?"
