The Ranger is an American
ship, based on a Martian hull, retrofitted with a basic steam engine (a Dapol
kit of a Stephenson's Rocket). The boat is based on a Star Wars model with heavy
conversion. Floors and lift wood panels were fitted from Wills Plastic Card. Fittings,
guns and crew come from by Lyzard Grin, Foundry, Copplestone and others. It is
similar in design to the Texas but has extra sponsons
with additional guns mounted. Another similar ship is the Ah'ny
uthar: a Martian ship on an uprated hull made with French military assistance!
