Remember that you can change most of these values (range, factory production, cost, etc) using Rich Dionne's marvelous pacedit proggie - included in the download. You DO need a copy of M$ Excel, though, to do it.
For example, my research indicated a goodly number of LB-30s (Brit B-24s) in the Pacific at war's outbreak - many lent to the US 19th BG for it's use. So I edited one of the VMFN squadrons (PW doesn't have much call for night fighters) to a B-24 squadron, based it at Cairns and upped the output of the factory (to reflect the nearly 20k Libs built).
BTW: You did make sure you're set to Human Factory Control?
