A company called "Airpower" used to be very nice, QRF marketted them.. I wish I knew where my old ones went
My first real wargaming was 1/300 Aerial using the old Newbury rules. We used H&R back then.
Raiden are very good, very similar to the Airpower ones IIRC.

Raiden are generally excellent. For 1/300 Scotia Grendel & H&R have larger ranges but are very variable in their quality.
I believe the original owners of Raiden produced the Airpower range under the name of B&M. They just switched scales from 1/300 to 1/285 when producing the Raiden aircraft.

I'm curious of your plans :D

If you want to recreate massive waves of Luftwaffe Bombers etc... then the Odzial Osmy and Tumbling dice 1/600 are pretty nice too and worth considering.

I agree that 1/600 are a good way of doing large scale battles such as the Battle of Britain or the 8th Air Force bombing of Germany in '44/'45.

Thank you gents, but my plan is simply to paint a few planes for the fun of it.......somewhat inspired by Mr Slug's recent piccies.
