Barsoom: Small Martian Flyer

redfly5

This is the RedVectors Small Martian Flyer, as seen in my post ‘SPACE 1889: Small Martian Flyer.’

It’s 7″ long, with a bit of crowding, you can fit 12 figures on the decks on 20mm bases. Since this release, they have developed a 10″ and 16″ version, with similar styling.

It’s a lovely kit, inexpensive, and goes together into a sorta-Star-Wars-inspired little skiff. The fit is excellent, and it’s still a pretty simple build. There is also an optional section for a front gun mount provided, but I chose not to use it.

The original stand was not very stable: This picture shows how I modifiedit. (The ship now comes with a longer, more stable base)

I’ll be using it for Barsoom and SPACE 1889 both. It’s just a great little kit of a generic small flyer. I recommend that you paint the rails and trim pieces before assembly, it makes for a much neater finish.

Here it is beside a smaller Galoob Sand Skiff. The style is very similar. The crews shown are from Bronze Age Miniatures.
