I know it's basically just a prop and theoretically you could use a rubber ducky but for a plane or planes you'd want to use in a skirmish game where the objective is something along the lines of destroy the German experimental jet, what make, scale and models look best alongside 28mm WW2 infantry?

Any experiences?

In terms of what you are likely to find, I'd say your best bet is 1/43rd scale. You will a pretty good variety.

There are 1/48 on eBay and Amazon. Not so cheap anymore (~50$)

Look for coin banks. They are either 1/43rd or 1/48th.

1/48 would probably come the closest until someone does a line of 1/56 planes.

1/48 pre-painted diecast Hobby Master Focke Wulf FW 190 prop fighter (will set you back around $80 USD or more):


1/48 pre-painted diecast Franklin Mint Messerschmitt ME 262 1st-generation jet fighter (will cost you upwards of $120 USD):


If you're balking at the prices, just buy these planes as cheap unbuilt plastic styrene kits and build them yourself. Being objective pieces it's not like they're going to be handled roughly anyway.
