I know this has been mentioned before. I picked up three of the Firelfy "Yachtzee" toy ships from WalMart.com $20 USD each including delivery. They are too small to be a freighter but make a perfect shuttle/drop ship in 15mm (imagine the cockpit is for s single pilot and not a crew of 4 or whatever). 15mm figure for comparison.

Bonus: The legs just pop on and off, so when it it in flight you can remove them. It's a heavy toy, though, so making a flight stand will need some ingenuity.

I have one too and use it with 6mm figures. Agree with Mark that it works as a dropship for 15mm. I use it as a freighter. Nice model.

So a single-man fighter in 28mm?

Maybe but to me it would look way too small. Still, for a mere $20 USD….

28mm drone vehicle. Good find!

It would work as advertised for 6mm sci-fi. Does it have a ramp? If so then it could carry armor or mecha.

There is no ramp but the bottom has an obvious "elevator" so you could say that is a ramp.

And with some 25mm figures from 1st Corps:
