    Thought I’d start a topic to see what all is out there.  Charles Oines just told me that this beauty is in 6mm scale!

    can be gotten from his Irrational Designs shapeway spage: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/irrationaldesigns

    At $35usd it isn’t cheap, but also not too expensive for such a good looking ship.

     

    What else is out there?

    Micro Machines toys and the like?

    This is quite cool, and could be converted easily enough:

    Revell Easy Kit 1/288 Millenium Falcon, close enough for 6mm, can be picked up cheap and simple to build.

    GZG have a shuttle or scout vessel in 6mm…..they did it in 15 and 28 too! There a couple of Landers and interface vehicles from Daemonscape..

    There is a 6mm Star Trek shuttle/run about , sold as a Xmas tree decoration…….also a6mm Firefly from the Firefly Yahtzee dice game……..try Amazon.com for these two.

    Hrm, was hoping there was more out there.  Mayhaps I’ll have to go and be a pioneer…

    Trouble is anything a decent size for 6mm is going to be fairly big, therefore relatively expensive and likely low sales numbers.

    I personally would love to see a range of large 6mm Landers, Dropships and such like for my human, bug and android armies.

    Maybe when i win the lottery i will commission some!

    Interest include 6mm WW2, 6mm SciFi, 30mm Old West, DropFleet, Warlords Exterminate and others!

    I found some others in the Space Fleet Yamato models, McDonald’s toys,Thunderbirds by Ertl and an impressive lander from Old Crow.

    [/url]

    Several H&R vehicles for scale, the Falcon from Revell.

     

    [/url]

    Interface shuttles from the Japanese model world…

    [/url]

    Larger armed shuttles……again from Japan, plastic kits that are very simple to assemble.

    [/url]

    A modified Thunderbird from Ertl…….EBay bargain as it is missing the tail.

    [/url]

    Old Crow behemoth….

    [/url]

    McDonald’s fleet landers…..

    Crowded landing zone!

    I have the Old Crow ship, it is a beast and very slick.
    Alas I have not assembled it yet due to fear of making a crap paint job of it and ruining the model!

    Here’s a link to HLJ in Japan, very cheap even with international shipping!

    https://hlj.com/product/BAN33410

    This one is pretty scaleless when built, makes a nice 6mm in system patrol boat along with several others in this range…..I pitch 6mm fighters against them etc for orbital combat games……much like WW2 coastal forces games……escorts and convoy duties.

    As a true wargamer,I of course couldn’t help myself and the patrol boat/fighter game grew with the addition of larger corvettes, frigates and destroyers (these are 8-16″ long)……

    Good stuff, thanks!!

    I believe the silver ships are from Gundam, an early version of the cruiser Cima commanded in 0083, and capable of atmospheric reentry, and exit with a booster (as you have).  Thanks for putting the tanks in there for scale, helps a ton.

     

    Going to have to get some of those Cosmo Hounds, they do indeed look fantastic for something like civilian trans-orbital airline shuttles.

    Soooo… I started scratch building some ships for a RPG campaign I am running.  I’ll start a new topic shortly when I have some progress to show but I just wanted y’all to be forewarned!
