This flyer is the Large Martian Flyer from RedVectors in the UK. It's useful for Barsoom, SPACE 1889, Star Wars, or any game that needs flying ships.

It's the same kit as in my post ‘Barsoom: Large Flyer'.' (So if you want more of a review, or a ship that's not a black blob, go there.) Please note that it was a custom kit, and may not be on the RedVectors website – Drop them a line if you are interested.

It's an upsized version of their first 7″ flyer, and is about 10″ long. The difference seems slight, but the new ship is very much larger.

I painted it black to represent any sinister force of night raiders, whether they be Kraag Martians, Black Martians, or whatever. It will spread terror through my games, both in SPACE 1889 and on Barsoom.

Cool. Is the mdf stand integral? Id be tempted to swap is out for a clear plastic rod but other than that really nice.

The stand isn't part of the ship, except for four little tabs. It is easily replaced.

Very smooth transaction, in spite of my confusion, and the supplier going on holiday in mid-order. Kudos!

I will admit I upscaled them a bit in my imagination. ;->=

However, still a bargain, and will find proper use, indeed!
