neprendo is on a distinguished road

I have been reading up on turbulence models such as the K-epsilon, K-omega, V^2-f model and the Reynolds stress method. The problem is that everything I read says that all of these methods are for low Re numbers and have problems near no slip walls because there is local extrema close to there. I was wondering is there any other methods, available in fluent, which would be more accurate for my problem or should I bite the bullet and settle for K-epsilon or whichever.

If it helps I plan to model naca profiles with a delta planform at a free stream velocity of approximately 600m/s (approximate cruising speed of Concorde at 60000ft) with compressible flow.
