X-Wing Lambda Shuttle

I'm feeling a bit less rubbish today, thanks to a couple of early nights and copious quantities of various medicinal drugs, so the flu-thing seems to be on the back foot. I was also cheered up by the arrival in the post of my Lambda Class Imperial Shuttle for X-Wing, which I ordered a while back and had almost forgotten about. 

It's the only non-fighter, larger sized model in my collection but very impressive to look at, even if it might not be that handy in a dogfight. I have an Amazon gift token thing left over from Xmas to spend, so may well invest in some more models and a storage case or bag to accomodate the X-Wing stuff, as it has now expanded beyond the original starter set box. 

Any suggestions?


  1. I'm using the Really Useful Boxes for mine. I've kept the plastic insert boxes from the packaging of the ships and store the fighters in those, so you can get ten models in a 4L box. Also bought the insert divider tray for for the 4L box. Two for each box with about 15 compartments each for the counters etc.. Plus a 2.5l box with six inserts large enough for the ship/pilot cards. Using left over foam inserts or bubble wrap the compartments can easily hold the fighters. Have no large ships at the moment so will cross that bridge when I come to it. Decided to use the plastic boxes since they are readily available locally and cheaper than using the pre-cut foam trays from say KR.

  2. That's a great idea!

    I hadn't thought of that..I'll see what I can work out along similar lines.

    Thanks for the idea.



  3. Pleasure. I must correct that you can eight ships in a 4L box keeping them in the plastic cases. The 4L. insert trays are great for the counters and will hold the small cards too. Keeps the playing area so much tidier.
