I'll have 12 fighters and 12 bombers per side so it should be enough for two parallel games. I roughed-out a campaign system over the summer, so look out for a future game.
The planes themselves are 1/200 scale resin, so a couple of inches square and do look rather nice.
First the famous zero fighter, mainstay of Japanese naval aviation throughout the whole Pacific war.

Second the F4F Wildcat, the main US naval fighter until replaced later by the F6F Hellcat

The game uses a three-position base (forward, upright, and backward) to show the advantage status of the planes as an abstraction of height. I felt this did nt look very attractive so went to the additional effort of magnetising the planes so they can be inclined while the stand remains upright.
