FOW alternative Manufacturer

I tried some models from an alternative manufacturer. They are cast and tanks cost $5 each(USD). They came primed black but in grey it shows the details better.

There's a Flak 38 20mm from battlefront in there for comparison.

By the time you have painted them you won't be able to tell the difference.

In my experience:
Battlefront has the best models. Metal/resin is my least favorite medium for prepping/cleanup/customization. Metal tracks usually have a casting line that often makes you remove other detail to get rid of it

Plastic Soldier Company is basically equal-details are there but maybe not as large/thick so it might be harder to drybrush. No unique sculpts.

Zvezda~80% of battlefront for detail. No opening hatchs.

Gaming Models-TBD. It seems to depend on the model. I'm not sure if its because some are earlier or later sculpts. The resin is softer so you could carve/modify with a knife.
