The resin and PE missile set is superior as far as scale and overall detail. While the kit missiles are very nice for injection molding the fins are way to thick and also have the molding seam to deal with. The AIM-7's you really can't see that much of as they are tucked up in the fuselage wells, but the AIM-9's hang right out there on the inboard pylons and are very visible. For myself, they are worth the extra $$, but everyone needs to make their own choice on that. I can recommend the Eduard sets as I have used a couple of them in the past and they are easy to build and add that true scale look.
