Greetings everyone,

I have been toying around with the idea of a Korean Air game, but I need to find out how easy it is to get some of the aircraft in miniature. Since I am in the US, US distributors would be appreciated. I am looking for 1/300 or 1/285 scale but really any scale will work.

I am especially interested in the following aircraft:

USAF
- P-80 Shooting Star
- F-95 Starfire
- F-84 Thunderjet

USN
- F9F Panther/Cougar

Communist Forces
-Yak-18 Max
-Yak-9 Frank
- LA-11 Fang
-Tupolov TU-2

British
- Hawker Sea Fury
- de Havilland Vampire
- Gloster Meteor

I am finding Mig-15s, B-29 Super Fortress, and F-86 Sabres pretty easy to find, but other aircraft of the period a bit tougher. A few here and there from "1-man shop" type places and often sold out or no longer stocked.

If you could give me a hand that would be great!

Those aircraft would probably be difficult to find in metal. But I bet Shapeways would have them.

I've purchased a bit from I-94 Enterprises. They do carry Check Your 6! products. On a quick site search, they have some korean planes, but not a wide variety.

It seems that some metal lines have been discontinued.

I did also buy some small (like dime sized) metal F-4's at a convention, I'm trying to see if I still have the name of that company. They seemed to have a wide selection of metals for vietnam, korea, etc. I'll post back if I find it. (They were not GHQ, who has some NATO and some Warsaw Pact, but not what you're looking for).

As Eumerin said, shapeways might be the call.

I found Tumbling Dice seem to have a good selection but at 1/600 not 1/300 or 1/144.
