Modern Aircraft for 15mm

Having a need for some Aircraft in my games, I did some research and found a few aircraft that I have been looking for in the 1:100 scale! and I have compiled a small list of ones that I think will be useful.

I have plans to purchase three of each of the models, two will be used for in flight and on the ground actions and the third will be used as a  crash site.

I will also get just one small airliner that is 1:100 scale for a crash site as well from Tamiya and a 1:96 scale Airliner from Lindberg. Which you can get them both from Hobbylinc

There is a paper model of a C-130 in 1:100 scale I'm thinking of as well for $12.00 from Paper Alice here's a link , with some extra work I was thinking of doing two of those one as a crash site and the other as "Get to the Plane!"

Now to the Meat and Potatoes! here are  Fixed Wing Aircraft that I will be using they are from Revell Models and can be found at most hobby shops.

Harrier Jump Jet and the A-10 Warthog.

Now there are other fixed wing aircrafts but I figured these would be most useful for myself.

Other very useful aircrafts that I can't wait to get are the Rotary Wing Aircrafts. these are from Revell Models as well and again can be found in many hobby shops as well.

UH-1H Huey.

AH-1 Cobra.

UH-60 Blackhawk.

SH-60 Seahawk.

AH-64 Apache.

For a CH-47 you have to go to Syma Drones at Model No. S026G. The complete kit is costly but the body parts are cheap! You will have to fabricate rotary blades because I don't think the ones they carry will do, nope not at all!

Old Glory UK has a CH-47 complete resin and metal model but a little too pricy for me .

Of course this is a short list of aircraft useful for 15mm game, Modern Combat games, Zombies, Alien Invasion, Giant Bugs, Giant Monsters, or Post Apocalyptic.

In addition the are a few others that will work great for Pulp Fiction game too but that's another list.
