In plastic or resin? All-metal would surely be too heavy for satisfactory gaming…

This was discussed a while ago. Someone made models of many pulp era spaceships and sold kits. I think a lot appear on eBay. Try starting there in model kits and that should get you a company name. Alternatively google images of 30s space ship models and follow links or names.

There are spaceship kits by a fellow named Deeks which show up on ebay. Found this one but I don't recall them being this expensive. auction

There is also this one auction but is a bit smaller than 28mm.

Very nice work, DPW.

Lots of other good options too.

I've seen a wooden rocket standing on it's tail, at Michael's, in the wooden crafts section. Pretty inexpensive as I recall.
