I kit-bashed this Lego helicopter back in 1983. The main rotor came from a windmill, the tail rotor from an airplane propeller, the pilot from a race car, and the body were bricks I had lying around.

Very nice job. Kitbashing is a term I haven't heard for awhile. I used to be quite heavy in to model railroading. Kitbashing, in model railroading, refers to the customizing of a kit model, either rolling stock or buildings. I have done a bit of both. I imagine that kitbashing could refer to the customization of any model kit. The hobby stores are full of parts and books on the subject.

Interesting collection of bits and parts.

Picture seems a tad fuzzy but the lighting seemed a bit tuff.

Thanks.

Calr, I picked up the kit-bashing term from model railroading too. I used to model Amtrak in my younger days. Which railroad and era did you model?
