I am pleased to announce the release my first Sci fi / near future vehicles.
There are at least another 12 I plan to release over the next two weeks.

First is the Hover command vehicle.
This is a fairly low tech command vehicle and great for Sci Fi or near future.


Second is the command hovercraft.
This can be used for Sci Fi, near future or modern day.


Thirdly is the command boat.
This can be used for Sci Fi, near future or modern day.


Let me know your thoughts please, I am working on lots of variants at the moment, so if you are interested in any specifics let me know. No promises but I will do what I can to accomodate.

Check out my facebook page for other updates.

Cheers Mike

What is the difference between hover and hovercraft vehicles?

Those look good.

I'm thinking the command boat may be riding too high in the water.

Although the hovercraft is almost an ATV it is mainly designed for water. But I prefer the look of it.

Nice vehicles & concept Mike,
Might i suggest a pic with a comparison mini or ruler for size.

Keep it up.

Very Nice, but I got to admit, I think I like the boat best. And "E I C" Bill may have a point. It does seem to be riding a bit "high in the water".

1. I think they all look great, although I'm not a fan (hehehe! … sorry) of plenum chambered hover-vehicles.

2. I think they look WAY TOO SMALL for 15mm … No?
6mm YES. 15mm? How? I mean, just look at the hatches…

I think the Command Boat should be weaponized and given a frontal beach-assault thing … ramp? Flap? Hinged drop-down landing ramp? like landing craft … sorry, words fail me right now (but probably not enough to not have caused offence … which really wasn't my intent!).

I'll shut up now and … :-)

War drone, all comments are welcome, they are not to everyones taste. They never will be.
I agree they probably should all have some sort of weapon attached an have decided to get something done to add to the vehicles.
The landing craft , ramp ect is also a great idea, somthing I will work on.
