1/48 AMK vs HobbyBoss MiG-31

Depends what you want.  HB's (current) kit is an earlier Soviet-era Foxhound; AMK's are both post-cold war versions.

 

AMK's is probably 'nicer'; HB's seems to be more accurate.

Not this to dispute you, but more accurate in what way? Shape, details?

There are some nits and minor issues with the AMK kit.  Nothing earth shattering, and IMO the bigger determining factor is probably the panel lines (some people love AMK's; some people hate them).  But there are a number of minor issues with the AMK kit, which HB seem to have improved on (while introducing a few of their own).  I haven't heard of any glaring accuracy issues with the HB kit, so on balance, it seems to have fewer nits.
