My review of Space Shuttle Alpha:
First off, be aware that this is a set of digital STL files to print with a 3d printer. The combination and quality of your printer, filament, and the speed you choose to print at, WILL have an effect on the final quality of the printed product.
That being said, these files are EXCELLENT! The detail is very crisp, and the parts fit together very nicely. The walls and structure are well formed and clip together well. Complete, it has a nice heft and is rather "gamer resistant". I would not be afraid of having other people lift, touch, and/or manipulate the model; it is sturdy enough to handle normal wear and tear (and the occasional picking it up and making "whooshing noises").
As configured from the modules included in the model – it is a simple troop shuttle, with the crew compartment seating 4, and the cargo compartment seating 8 troopers. It also has a weapons locker for the carried grunts. However, due to the modular nature of the internal components – it would be fantastically easy to make it a "pure" cargo shuttle by printing more floor panels and removing many of the interior modules to make for lots of floor space.
Or even to make an"X-Com"-esque dropship – by moving the "grunt" seating to the middle compartment, and having the rear converted to a cargo compartment to carry a S.H.I.V or MEC trooper.
Simply put - this model has ludicrous amounts of potential.
As such, I strongly recommend this package to anyone who has a 3d printer and needs a shuttle for gaming purposes. 5/5 stars.
