Air War Korea - Part III: Check Your 6! Air War Korea

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.

Aircraft # Needed
AD-4 4
B-29A 9
F4U-4 4
F-51D 6
F-80C 8
F-82A 3
F-84E 8
F-86A 6
F-86E 6
F-86F 4
F9F-2 8
F9F-3 4
F9F-5 7
IL-10 6
La-11 10
Meteor 2
MiG-15 8
MiG-15bis 8
RF-86A 1
Tu-2 9
Yak-9P 9

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.
