Has anyone come across rules for the Dambusters raid?

I am currently playing GMTs "Enemy Coast Ahead" -The Dambusters. You could probably adapt this somehow. I'm considering it myself actually. It's simple(combat wise), yet factors in quite a bit. You could run it as a sort of campaign using the board game, until the run to targets begin. The GMT game covers Planning, Flight to target, and Attack runs. It then provides success assessments, when the raid is done.

Other than that, I'm not aware of any miniatures rule sets that cover night raids.

Alan:
Miniature Wargames #34 had a very simple set of dambuster rules- mostly luck dependent.

Thanks. I'll dig out my copy!

Wings of Glory has a Lancaster Dam Buster miniature that comes with rules and mini maps.
