Fair use?

For the Weinbaum RPG I want to include parts of some illustrations that were used for Weinbaum's stories in their original publication. The main ones are the spaceships from the cover of Astounding Stories, November 1935, which is presumably still in copyright (incidentally, can anyone name the artist?). The whole cover is here:

What I want to do is isolate the two ships as separate images, remove the lettering, and do my best to replace the bits that are covered by lettering, the bit of the second ship that is covered by part of the Peri, etc.

I assume that I'd need to pay royalties for the whole cover, if I could find the copyright holder - would using small parts constitute fair use?
