Kit bashing is an easy way into scratch building, plus it's a lot of fun to let ones imagination loose
Nice thing about this is that you make something look cool with a modest amount of effort and scratch building experience [smile]

The idea here is to take a kit and re purpose it for use outside its normal operational regime, with the aid of another kit if need be.
Take a plane and turn it into a car or boat or stick legs or skis on it, take a tank and make it fly ! or float [smile]
A land sea air swaparama so to speak [biggrin]

pimp up a plane into a HotRod, dragster, pod racer, race car, rally car, Mad Max, Death Race 2000, Lunar explorer,
or make a flying car, tank submarine, aircraft carrier on tracks, where ever your mojo takes you to [smile]

You can copy anyones design as long the build and paint work is your own etc. etc. [smile]

Kits need not be new and unstarted as this might be a good idea to reinvigorate new life into abandoned builds and previously finished models you're on the verge of binning etc. and save some cash [smile]
I'm thinking an F15 might make a cool Formula 1 race car but I do have an old finished Huey that could become a dragster [biggrin]


here's a link to some more ideas
https://uk.pinterest.com/pin/85920305368797206/

and here are a few pics I like [smile]

This is a good example of a "minimum scratch building required" kit bash, cut the wings of and glue on the wheels, looks cool though [biggrin]

Ok I know, this one has been re-purposed from sea to back sea again but it was reworked creatively so it still counts [biggrin]

Here is the basic idea. I hope it will be good. Some heavy podracer, or smugler shuttle.

Ah cool, I like it [smile]
it's like those two parts were made for each other [wink]
I just love the way slinging two pieces of plastic can together can form the basis of a new idea [biggrin]

Yeah it's done well plus it looks feasible too which only adds to the realism of it [smile]

here's a real life jet bike in action [biggrin]


Thought I might include a couple of Brundledonk's creations seeing as they fit the theme [smile]

His jet bike
[20140322_193142_zpsc4710823]

His Falke,
although a kit the Falke started out as a scratch build using P38 engine nacelles & booms and an F1 body (with lots of putty and scratch building)
