Default Traveller miniatures in 28mm in US?

Curious if anyone has a great source of Traveller minis? Iím looking for Merchant crews and Scouts and starship crews. Some pistols but basically not full time combatants. I have a number of Heresy minis. Looking for a box of starship crew types.

Ground Zero Games in the UK has a lot of different 25mm sci-fi miniatures, including civilians and lightly armed unarmored figures.

I have been using old Star Wars Minatures and they worked just fine. The game is out of print, but common miniatures are very cheap from online stores. They are more like 30mm and plastic, though, but come pre-painted. The line includes many generic humans and even some Star Wars Aliens that can pass satisfyingly for Vargr and fteirle.

I figured it out. Sally4th has anthropomorphic bipedal bodies with combinations of head/tails that can be used to make cat and fox headed miniatures. Their Albedo product line. I'm looking to make Aslan/Vargr respectively.

I bought a 3d resin printer (Anycubic Photon) and it will print in gorgeous detail at 25-32mm (i print infantry at 15mm that look great). You can get the 3d files, stl, from many places online. You can print a lot of custom minis using files from desktop hero or heroforge or anvil. Thingiverse and other repositories have free files so you can literally print an mountain of resin minis and vehicles in a day. Faster than you can paint or have delivered to your home. I have taught myself to make 3d models, and you can find them here:

Some of Mantic's Star Saga and other sci-fi stuff might serve, although they are somewhat hampered by a reluctance to sell miniatures as opposed to randomly themed packs...
