I was wondering if anyone made wingless vectored-thrust "aerodyne" aircraft ala Cyberpunk 2020 and other RPGs. I think GZG still makes one, but I wanted to keep my options open.

Never heard of them before until now. Is this the look you mean?

GZG sold their 25mm vehicle line to Demonscape as MajorB's link

I believe there are some 15mm but I know of no others.

Scratch build is the solution

If you are going to build your own, I guess you could start with one of these Robogear cockpits.

Yup, I was going for the "flying mini-van" look.

The Spinner from Bladerunner is available as a model in various scales, maybe one fits.

Use helicopter models as a base. Cut off the tail unit and fabricate jet nozzles from bits an pieces. Cut down the rotor housing and just add bits to make it look cool. The Blackhawk would make a good start and is available in many scales, but look around and imagine.

I made a 15mm aerodyne in Sketchup back when I was first learning to use the program, circa 2011, at the request of Eli Arndt. These are some images of it on his Photobucket:

Daemonscape has GZG old 28mm range, has some 25-28mm vtols

I've got some of the old GZG VTOL aircraft (the bug, the gunship and the Casevac vtol) but I've also got some of Antenocitis civilian sports models (and the Police version of the matador).
Also the old Scotia Grendel police "totes not a spinner" security grav car.

Javelin,

Was that the one inspired by Albedo. I really should have you clean that one up with your newer skills and try to get it produced.
