The Reducta-Craft was a vessel created by Mister Fantastic of the Fantastic Four for travelling to the Microverse. The vehicle and its occupants shrink in size using Pym Particles until they breach the barrier between their native universe and the Microverse.
The Reducta-Craft was first used when the Fantastic Four went searching for the Silver Surfer who had fled to the Microverse to escape his former master Galactus. They eventually convinced the Surfer to return to Earth to face Galactus. They were also returned to their proper universe by their foe the Psycho-Man when they convinced him that Galactus was a mutual threat. However when they returned to Earth they found that Galactus had already been defeated. Although the Reducta-Craft was left behind it was presumably recovered or rebuilt.
Sometime later, when the Psycho-Man returned to their universe to recover a suit of armor he previously lost to the Fantastic Four, the group's leader Mister Fantastic and his wife the Invisible Girl used the Reducta-Craft to investigate the theft by following Psycho-Man into the Microverse. There they assisted the Micronauts in defeating Psycho-Man's latest scheme, before using the Reducta-Craft to return home. The original Reducta-Craft was later destroyed by an army of Antons sent to Earth by Prince Argon to thwart a the Micronauts return to their universe during a period that were stranded on Earth. After many trials and tribulations, the Micronauts found their way home through other means.
When the Invisible Girl was captured by Psycho-Man and brought to the Microvese, Reed built a new Reducta-Craft in order for the Fantastic Four to rescue her.  When they succeeded in rescuing her, they returned to their native reality.  This model was seemingly destroyed when the Fantastic Four's headquarters the Four Freedoms Plaza was destroyed by Kristof Vernard.
During a period in which Mister Fantastic seemingly perished, the Invisible Woman refused to believe her husband had died. By this time the Fantastic Four's ally the Black Panther built a new Reducta-Craft for them. The Fantastic Four used it on an unsuccessful trip to the Microverse to search for Reed there. The FF later found that Reed was alive and well and he returned to the team later.
