As the title suggests, I'm looking for a space/star shuttle type craft to use with my 28mm figures. Ideally something generic to be used for my Dr Who, Star Wars & Star Trek gaming. Also, seen a few examples from US based manufacturers, but the shipping cost is the killer, so UK or EU would be preferable.


Happy for it to be mdf, plastic, resin, metal – essentially anything but paper.


So any ideas?

I think mad mecha guy has spacecraft in mdf, but I'm not sure if he still sells his products…

Daemonscape has some 25mm scale ships…that could work

It looks as if Shapeways is not too outrageous to the UK; is something like this a big enough shuttle?: link

Have you seen the newly unlocked stretch goals for the Albedo Combat Patrol Kickstarter?

Antenociti sells several different dropships. Big chunks of resin, detailed interiors. link


150gbp, including VAT.

This one only has a detailed cargo bay:


85GBP, including VAT.

For a much smaller transport:


only 27.50gbp, including VAT.

It's distinctive, but there is also the Aliens Dropship from Prodos Games. link


can be build with the weapons pods deployed, too.
also 150GBP, including VAT.

Mantic has the enforcer interceptor link

£25.00 GBP each, I picked up a couple for £20.00 GBP on ebay but I doubt I'll get another deal like that anytime soon.

Thanks for all the responses. You have all given plenty to think about and potentially spend!

From the USA but a lovely little model with a hollow interior which is ideal for scratch-building whatever interior layout meets your requirements.

I found one of these at Goodwill for $2 USD

auction

I do like that USHI from ClearHorizon and it would be ideal, but the cost is prohibitive – $76.99 USD total cost to get it to the UK.

Thye Tau ship by GW is quite good , cheap and readily available – I use it for 15mm but is obviously designed for 28mm.

link or Revell's Halo 'Pelican' – it's 1/100 but it works well with 28mm link

Forgot about the Hornet £24.99 GBP.

If you have (or have access to) a 3D printer, 2nd Dynasty produced a nice shuttle model as part of their recent 3D tile KS campaign. link

They've got another campaign comes ng up later this month that includes the shuttle as well as a couple of other new ships they're working on currently. link
