I picked up one of the old MicroMachines Rebel Transports the other day and did a repaint on it.

The model also came with a X-wing.  It was slightly smaller than the FF ones, so I did a bit of kitbashing on it and turned it into a Z-95.  I apologize for the poor lighting in the pics.

A little bit of repaint over the darker areas and a nice wash and it's good enough for the table top

If you are looking for a nice objective or escort mission ship, the transport works well and is fairly close to scale with minimal effort.

Nice repaint. Did you do something about the ramp on the side? (I can't see it)

I thought about removing it and putting in some plasticard to fill in the gap, but because I wanted to make this an easy conversion, I just glued it in place.  If you didn't know it was there, you wouldn't notice it.  I'll try to get some pics of the other side and post them up.

I've got the same transport and it does look quite nice with FFG fighters. I've used it in convoy missions with my local league. I used the Shuttle stats that come with the game but they are a little weak so I'm working on my own.


  • Rebels: 5 X-wing, 3 Y-wing, 3 A-wing, 3 B-wing, 2 Hawk 290 and  a YT-1300
  • Imperial: 9 Tie fighters, 3 Advanced, 3 Interceoters, 2 Bombers, a Shuttle and Firspray 31
