Default Airborne Models / World Models Clipped Wing 48

I just bought a World Models Clipped Cub 48 from Airborne Models and I am very disappointed in the quality of this ARF. I had two of these same planes a few years back and they were good quality then. They used to be covered in oracover but now they have some other kind of covering that does not stick good. My plane has a lot of wrinkles and the covering is coming off in some spots. I have been thinking about recovering the whole plane since Airborne Models won't let me trade it in on another one. The cowl is too big and not uniform. The wing has one mounting hole drilled about a 1/4" off. The wind shield fits crooked. They give you balsa mounting blocks for the aileron servos and one of the servo trays is warped. I have had problems with balsa servo mounting blocks breaking on other planes. I think this will be the last Airborne Models / World Models for me. I am going to stick with Seagull and Phoenix Models because they never disappoint and their vendors stick behind them. I have never had a VQ Models. Is the quality good on them?
