I went through the CY6 Air War Korea scenario book tonight to determine what would be the maximum number of the aircraft needed to create each scenario. The numbers are...impressive. I do not believe I will aspire to collect them all as this is simply too many aircraft to comprehend, especially the number of B-29s one would need.
Obviously some of the above are not manufactured in 1/285th (and I am a stickler, no 1/300th scale for me), and some are redundant as few folks will be able to tell the difference between a MiG-15 and a MiG-15bis in 1/285th, so that does shrink the list down a bit but still leaves far more aircraft than I want to invest in.
What I am shooting for is the following: four F4Us, six F-86s, four F9Fs, and six MiG-15s. To that end I am sending some planes to Chris Geisert at I-94 Enterprises to have painted. I have seen his work firsthand, and he does a very nice job for a very reasonable price. Of course I will post pictures of the planes once he has sent them back to me.
