Anyone know if Balloon Buster will stand on its own or will I need BD? Tell me about BD, please.

I feel like I am already drawn to the miniatures so the Ballon Buster preview look great.

Do you know if Balloon Busters will stand on its own as game, I  now have Famous Aces, or will I need more?

What is Burning Drachens like?

Do the solo scenarios have anti-air fire to challenge you? 

It is just the plane against the Balloon? 

I am in dark regarding this era/type of combat so any info/and your impressions/experiences with BD are appreciated.

I don't know what's in Balloon Busters other than the models, but I can tell you what's in BD.

You get cards for Balloons, ground targets and AA guns (plus some more aircraft, can't remember which ones since all my stuff is organised by type rather than by box set now) and another A damage deck. Rules, decks and counters are added for altitude, ground attacks and AA fire. There's also some new scenarios and advanced rules.

Edit: The planes are the Nieuport 17 and 23 for the allies and the Albatros D3 and Pfalz for the Germans. Manouevre decks included.

Are these Balloon Expansion Packs out yet? And if so where can you get them.
