Is it better than the Academy kit?

Academy is a copy of the Heller kit, with engraved line...

... and the Academy kit can also be built as a radial-engined Morane-Saulnier MS.502.

Does it mean Academy is good or bad?

I would disagree, there are several shape issues with the Academy, none of which are present on the Heller kit - i.e. a rather pronounced wing dihedral (original didn't have one at all!), oversized/oversimplified smaller parts, etc.

Most Academy Storks I have seen built have a rather toy-like appearance to them.

 

Clear parts are not great on either kit, but a bit closer to reality on the Heller/Smer/AZ.

Heller kit can be turned into a real head-turner by some minor upgrades:

  • Some improvement in the interior (not much needed because of the thick clear parts)
  • Scribing-in those few panel lines the actual aircraft had
  • Correcting the shape of the cowling intake to oval
  • Refining the main struts a bit and replacing the smaller ones

 

Here's a great build by Rato Marczak, highlighting what could be done with the old Heller
