Two of our favourite purveyors of lasercut wooden things are once again bridging the gap across the Atlantic and this time the ships aren't sailing but flying! Things from the Basement and 4Ground are giving fans of Victorian Science Fiction the chance to take to the skies like those wonderful men in their flying machines.

Aphid Class Airship // Things from the Basement

The Aphid Class is already available Stateside from Things for all your steampunk or VSF needs and weighs in at a whopping 480mm long and 175mm wide. As you can see the kit itself is lasercut HDF with resin printed guns from Trilaterum and is the ideal small airship for any Victorian Science Fiction, Steampunk or Pulp Fiction setting.

The Aphid Class Airship is a small armoured gunboat in British Service. Fast, durable and well-armed for its size it is a common sight over the wide plains of the Red Planet. If you fancy picking up a box of Perry's Zulu War British, cracking out the Home Service helmets and heading to mars then this is the ship to do it on.

4Ground just previewed their test build of the files so it won't be long before VSF players in Blighty can take to the skies also.

Both versions come with the weapons and I think these are fantastic looking vehicles for some pulp gaming, or even scenario based objectives for your games.

What do you think of this Gunboat for the skies?
