Transport Delta

Transport Delta

This page details the original Transport Delta from 2019. In December 2023, the Delta got an update called the 1700-Series. This is a complete overhaul of the original design with a mind for printability, functionality and detail. For more details, see the Transport Delta 1700-Series here.

Cruise the hyperspace lanes in this high-speed transport. Haul cargo – legal or illicit – with two massive engines to get you from point A to point B. Manoeuvre with the fluidity of repulsor technology and defend yourself with manned or unmanned turrets and a powerful shield generator.

Transport Delta is one of our three ships from Starship III, our third Kickstarter. It is a 3d-printable 28-mm scale starship for tabletop play and display. There were many variants of the transport unlocked as stretch goals during Starship III and also as an add-on in Starship IV.

  • The ship is detailed inside and out and a variety of configurations can be used to customise the deck plans
  • Modular interior – customise the layout however you like using other Starship or compatible tiles
  • The transport has larger parts, and requires a medium sized print bed that can fit 215mm/8.5 inches
  • Contains over 80 parts
  • Largest part is 176×62×140mm (7×2.5×5.5″)Can be rotated to fit 156×140×140mm (6.1×5.5×5.5″)
  • Longest part is 215×155×35mm (6×8.5×1.4”)
  • There are some additional margins if parts are rotated, etc.

We offer Transport Delta as a downloadable STL file collection on a variety of sites, but our preferred distributor is MyMiniFactory, where we are able to offer our products at the most competative prices.

Transport Delta includes a fully realised interior and exterior that can be printed on your home FDM 3D printer, or ordered through a print service to serve tabletop miniature play or display with 25-32mm miniatures.

Transport Delta
Exploded Deck Plans

Transport Delta premiered during Starship III, using a design language that is something between our own aesthetic with elements of the Shuttle’s shield generator and the Scout Ship’s engines, blended with a design language intended to sit alongside popular miniatures from the galaxy far, far away.

Transport Delta can be customised with a wide variety of modifications to the base hull, for example, asymmetric cockpits, upper decks, large turrets, or turning the ship into a flying saucer.

Gunship Variant

The Gunship Variant adds the capability to replace the single gunport turret of the stock Delta with four turret points, significantly increasing the firepower of the ship.

Asymmetric Variant

It’s no mistake what the inspiration for the Delta is, although absent the asymmetry of its primary influence. The Asymmetric Variant changes the silhouette of the Delta.

It does so also in a modular fashion, so you can expand the length of the ship, or even join two hulls together as one crazy ship. Joining to the side rings and cockpit, it can be adapted to all other variants of the Transport Delta.

Big Gun Variant

This Big Gun Variant adds the large barbette turret style of the Gunboat version of the scout ship to the Delta. Compatible with Turrets Pack IV.

Pack Some Capital Firepower…

Upper Deck Variant

The Upper Deck variant of the Delta adds a small cabin space and dorsal turret port which can be used for sporting another turret or an airlock ring (with Turrets Pack III).

Saucer Variant

This circular Saucer Variant changes the profile of the Delta drastically, creating a saucer shape with the cockpit on its own upper level.

For Close Encounters…

Upper Cockpit Variant

For a little more cargo space, and additional docking capabilities, the Upper Cockpit Variant moves the cockpit from the nose of the ship to an upper deck.

Long Transport Variant

First making its appearance as an add-on to Starship IV: Chimera, the Long Transport Delta Variant extends the ship in sections to create a lengthier hull.

Additionally, the following add-ons may be of interest. Turrets Pack I adds a variety of turrets and weapons. If you have the Kickstarter version of Transport Delta, you can use the hard points to add these weapons to the nose section, while these turrets will fit nicely, as will the ones from Turret Packs II and III. If you have the Big Gun Variant, Turrets Pack IV is also compatible with it.
