Have been looking around but couldn't find a list of the planes included in this pack.

As it's almost impossible to get, I want to get the planes individually and therefore would help to know what type of planes were originally included, along with any other miniatures included in the pack as well.

Also do most people find that 1/300 scale to be the best for the planes?

Any chance the Battle of Britain that is on kickstarter right now will be proper models for some of the Air Pack scenarios. Seems to good to pass up, if so.

And just so you are clear, the game uses one model for all three Yaks.

Checked out the Navwar site but they do seem to have some of the more popular planes missing from their site. Others I've looked at which vary in price,sold individually or as part of another game series:

Wings of War
Crimson Skies
Black Cross/Blue Sky
Axis & Allies
Zvezda

Of course the issue is that Memoir 44 soldiers are actually bigger than the game's armour so smaller planes may well work better but I guess that's individual opinion.

Another option is plastic vs printed paper/card planes which I've seen. The advantage of the latter is that you don't need to paint them and look pretty good.

That site looks great and will investigate it more.

Also once I have the planes do I just need the Air Pack PDF from Days of Wonder or is there anything else I'm going to need?

When buying planes is it worth buying more than one type for example two spitfires instead of one or is that unnecessary for the scenarios?

Finally does anybody actually buy any additional aircraft to use with the game and custom incorporate them into the scenarios?

You need just 1 of each aircraft.

I bought a J-88 for Red Barricades scenario.

I just ordered 2 of each plane from scotiagrendel.com minus the storch for about $15. In overlord scenarios I believe you can run two planes per side.
