I think you may get decent results using low-Re models. For example, I am looking at the drag for a sphere at Re = 1e6 - 1e7 and I get reasonable results with kOmegaSST (low-Re version) in Fluent. Unfortunately, we still do not have this model in OF, but I can guarantee you, you can get reasonable results both for axisymmetric and full-3D analyses.

Alessandro, Thanks for sharing your experience. Maybe one of these days I will get my faith in turbulence models back :-)
