Nice. I'm struggling for ideas about what to use for planes with my 1/3000 WW2 Med. stuff. What manufacturer / scale are yours?

Im using A&A WAS 1/900 scale and Figurehead 1/1200 scale planes.

I looked up Navwar 1/3000 planes. you could mount to 2 or 3 to a base. would look great but they are small be carefull putting them together.

SWORDFISH (15)

£1.10
Qty :Description - SWORDFISH x 15 3MA01 - Individual Aircraft NOT Based - 2 or 3 seater Fleet Torpedo and reconnaissance aircraft. First saw service in 1937. Served throughout World War 11.

Like rcbecker1 I have many WaS planes which work well unaltered.

I have also used the 1/1200 by CAP AERO. I cannot imagine going any smaller then 1/1200 as fighters are staring to get pretty small at that scale.

I assume at that scale you glue several on a base same as WAS Maybe glue the wings together as WAS. I have seen some glued on the base with no wire or glued on clear plastic then fold the platic into a traingle so they are at the top.

Picture Barrowed from GQIII Website.
