It may be worth looking at the old Avalon Hill boardgame called flight leader sure it would have some mechanics you would find inspiring it was a great board game.

See: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3711/flight-leader

Will these rules be freely available or are you hoping to package and sell them in some form?

I put them up on the Vault, and later this year pitching them around a bit further. 

The market for Korean Air War is pretty.... niche.... so I expect the best place for them is probably the Vault until I can prove there is a market for them.

Oh yeah, if you are interested you can find the rules on the link here:

I think I have painted all my USAF and Communist craft.  I am mulling over if I want some USN/USMC and Commonwealth craft as well.

Love the look of the aircraft and good battle report - may unfortunately be a while before I can get these rules.

I see Warlord and Blood Red Skies has a growing range of Korean War applicable aircraft, such as the Sabre, MIg-15 in the the MIG Alley boxed set, as well as the F4F Bearcat, F-51 Mustang and the F-80 Shooting Star.  I am interested to see what else they add to their range. 

There scale is a bigger than the Tumbling Dice 1/600, and the cost goes up with the larger scale too.

Here are some random photos using my Tumbling Dice collection.....



F-84 ThunderJets make an attack run on a North Korean dam in '52.  It is well protected by NK anti-air artillery.  The ThunderJet was the most prolific and effective fighter-bomber of the Korean War.



MIG-15s engage their primary targets, the B-29 Superfortress in a bomber intercept mission.  Daylight raids had to be halted in late 1950 as Bomber losses grew to be too high.  They resumed on and off again through the rest of the war depending on the strategic and tactical situation. 



The first USAF kills in the war were from F-82 Twin Mustangs against North Korean La-9s near the Suwon Field airbase.  This engagement took place during the opening days of the war. 

Hope to get these guys on the table for a game or three before the end of the year.
