Or mules, sleds, skimmers and landspeeders, etc., either fully scratchbuilt or converted/kitbashed?

I am fully aware that many fine companies produce their own types, but I'm much more curious to see how the average 15mm gamers put their own hands to work on making one or more. Specially those that might have a little extra room for taking on a little bit of cargo. :)

Thanks.

Just imagine what some Offworld settlers might use to get around over all terrain, themselves and/or their cargo, in lieu of horses …

No real tutorials here:

But some brain-storming.
Depending on how low cost you want to go, there are bits out there to get you started with a Sci/Fi small transport in 15mm:

First think spaceships but ones intended for a radically different scale.

Flip these upside down, cut off parts splice some together and add a cabin for 15mm scale and you have something.

There are tons of metal spaceships on the market, but the price goes way up and there are harder to cut up:

These Valiant StarDate 3000 Space Ships many look like speeder bikes, too bad they cost so much:

Converted toys or bits of toys:

Model parts, such as 1/35th scale tank parts will look like something completely different in a 1/100 (15mm) context.

Not a tutorial, per se, but I do offer some 15mm-scale control columns that can be used to convert Clix dials or bases into hover-sleds.

I've thought about it, since I don't like many of the speeder bike designs, and suspect I can do better.

I do like that repulsor raft above.

The Flying Mule is just butt ugly too.

Anyone sell separate riders for them, in 15mm, or 25mm/28mm?

I'd prefer guys in battle armor, but some plain-clothed ones would be fine too, for civvies, or lower tech troops.

I agree, that Serenity mule doesn't appeal to everyone.

Repurposing those plastic toy ships might just work. I might need to run the cut edges lightly over a flame to take off the obvious cut marks, but that might be one of the best suggestions I've heard for this in a very long time!
