Looking for lasercut wooden Barsoom flyers
« on: January 02, 2019, 08:56:49 PM »
I've done a search and a skim of this forum, but I haven't had any luck, so I thought I should just post the question.

Awhile back I'm certain that I saw some lasercut wooden Barsoom skiffs/flyers, they were very nice looking and ornate in an Art Deco sort of style, but I can't seem to find them again.

Do they sound familiar to anyone here?  I'd love to take another look at them and see if they'll work for a project that I have planned.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

I would love to see someone convert the TRE Games 28mm Greek galley into a Barsoomian sky galley, perhaps with feathers in place of oars.

Besides those fantastic airships that TRE Games makes, there are other ships that could be converted into native planet sky galleys, including the one shown above from TRE Games.

Here's another galley from Sarissa that has conversion potential for making a native planet sky galley:

Perhaps this small Roman Trade Ship from Sarissa could be converted into a little sky skiff for use over Barsoom:

Then again, hard to beat the purpose built TRE Games flyers:

Warrenpeace thanks for posting the Roman Trade Ship, maybe of use to me but for a different reason to this though!
