i just bought the h9 1.50 mustang and currently putting it together for my winter project. I have found that the planes coating is very nice with no dings and few wrinkles. i have read alot and talked to owners that say the gear rails are weak and hard landings will crack them. so i have glued 1/4 inch ply under and perpendicular to the rails. and as most stock retracts they will be replaced. i have also herd the flaps work very well and slow the plane fast. although the plane is very stable and easy to fly. many have said the manuals recomendations on the elevator are very touchy and needs backed off a little. if anyone has info on different retracts that would be great. i dont know any thing on others only that the world models planes come with better hardware such as hinged control surfaces.

I have a world models 60 size mustang. I can say that i have had the others you mentioned and the quality of workmanship on my world models beats the other two. My retracts aren't wobbly, My cowl is perfect and i get a clear cowl for making cutouts and mounting holes before ruining real cowl, My world mod mustang also comes prehinged with hinges glued. Not to bash hangar9 or top flight but world models has them beat! Just my .02 worth
