At 30mm long,dependant on the time period,your looking at around 1/200th(10mm scale).Try Navwar(Davco);GHQ;Minifigs for a start. I'll have a look around and see what I can find for you.

For modern/post-war jet aircraft, 30mm would be in the region of 1/350 scale. There are loads of 1/350 plastic aircraft kits available to go on carrier models - here's a selection:

The Tamiya ones are easily the best value, but Trumpeter's are very nice kits, including clear parts and good quality decals.
