Both those sets are seriously inaccurate.

Comparisons between the two, and other options including the Airfix kit parts, here

The only accurate 1/48 aftermarket set was the Paragon one, long out of production and now very hard (and expensive) to track down. Working with the Airfix kit parts is probably currently the most cost-effective route to something vaguely reasonable.

The way to do it is shown here:

And as you will see from that thread there is hope that Alleycat will make sets available at some point.

If you don't mind switching to 1/72, Blackbird Models do a good set for the Tamiya kit
