28mm ARBCO Star freighter


I bought the freighter ship from Table Top Combat:

A great piece of kit and perfect for representing the fated ARBCO Star from the GI Joe comics of the 80s.

The kit assembled










I wanted the waterline on the model to be higher so I added a 2 inch layer of foam for a hill base.



Traced and cut out

Sanded and shaped

Coated with caulk

Primed

Base coats


Weathered








More to come!

  1. That is an awesome ship! It looks perfect for all kinds of scenarios. Adding the lower hull to give it more height was a great idea, it really improves the overall look.
