To me the main difference is ease of/speed of assembly.  I think a worthwhile development for Tamiya would be to sell a mix of kits depending on what detail you want.  Personally for example, if Eduard do come up with a Spitfire series, I would buy mostly those to model all the variants, however I would also buy one or two of the Tamiya kits, to display the engine detail, or usa a Tamiya kit and make a cut away model to display engine and cockpit detail.  It would be nice to have a super detailed model of the Merlin and a Griffon variant, the rest I would only be interested in building cowlings closed, to diplay the different Mks.
