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

Also Old Crow still operates. Couple of nice shuttles theres

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

How big is a shuttle in your eyes? I use these:

I use a Daemonscape transport for my Star Trek crew: auction

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.

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.



chuck05 Fezian08 Nov 2018 6:41 a.m. PST

I found one of these at Goodwill for $2 USD


Norrins08 Nov 2018 6:59 a.m. PST

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.

dwartist08 Nov 2018 9:05 a.m. PST


36 Euros…

dwartist08 Nov 2018 9:20 a.m. PST

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

Earl of the North08 Nov 2018 12:05 p.m. PST

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

joedog25 Nov 2018 9:20 a.m. PST

That 2nd Dynasty shuttle looks good. Too bad they don;t have it available for sale as a model – or for print through a service liek shapeways.

chromedog28 Nov 2018 4:59 p.m. PST

Seconding the 1:100 pelican.

It works well for 28mm since it's a beast of a kit (305mm long) and is comparable in size to the GW Valkyrie.
A bit of work on the ccokpit canopy and it's as good as a dedicated 28mm shuttle.

Canuckinator02 Dec 2018 3:23 p.m. PST

@joedog – I believe 2nd Dynasty sold/sells commercial licenses, so there might be someone near you who could print a shuttle for you. I backed their KS and would be happy to enquire for you if you were interested.

joedog09 Dec 2018 8:14 a.m. PST

@Canuckinator – I would appreciate that. My interest depends on affordability/pricing, of course.

Canuckinator10 Dec 2018 4:34 p.m. PST

No problem joedog. I've fired off a note to Ben at 2nd Dynasty and I shall share my findings once he replies.

joedog12 May 2019 3:53 p.m. PST

@ Canuckinator

Any word?

Canuckinator19 May 2019 12:36 p.m. PST

You probably thought I'd forgotten about you, didn't you. ;)

Strangely, Ben told me he doesn't have a list of commercial license holders – which seemed a tad odd. At any rate, I've been trying to track down any of these license holders and to date I've had no luck. Based on the quality of the digital sculpts, I figured it would be fairly simple to find someone selling the prints. Apparently not. :(

Fear not though…I'm still searching!

joedog19 May 2019 2:41 p.m. PST

Thanks for the effort.

Norrins05 Jun 2019 9:02 a.m. PST

I ended up going with the 2001 Moon Bus model kit.


As you can see has a detailed interior and can be built so that roof comes off.

Also, was £35.00 GBP including p&p.
