You will never learn if you don't do yourself. And frankly you cannot do a kitbash wrong.

I have to agree with Tesral on that. :)
Do it yourself and learn Jose. That way you start in the wonderful world of kitbashing!
From there, to the Wonderful World of Scratchbuilding, is just a hop and a skip away. ;) :lol:
And who knows... You might even stop and pick up that hub cap next time you go by it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks for the vote of confidence, gentlemen. And don't think I haven't thought wistfully at that hubcab...

While I jokingly asked for the parts to be sent to me, I'm here to tell you that some of the most satisfying building I have ever done is kitbashing.

Some shy away from it or worry too much about screwing something up but that's all a part of the learning and the fun. Learn by doing!

Bash away! personally I like the second design for what it's worth. Just get in there and start bashing! The only advice I have for you is to maybe scratch build your own nacelles.

Oh, and take pics and share!!!!!
