Builds/profiles etc made only from parts of kits.  Some may call it a Kitbash GB though I prefer Frankenstein GB.

Wasn't this an option in the last GB poll ? That or something similar. I voted for it, have a couple of Builds ready to go . . .

Not in the last poll.  There was something like it in the one before that.  Re-raising it here gets it included in the next vote.

I like the concept ... but I'm wondering how it could be tailored to include profiles?

How about something like this?

- 1: Profiles to be based on two (or more) pre-existing works (or WIP) of existing types which have been kitted.
-- ie: Theoretically, the resulting profile(s) could be recreated in scale from commercially-available model kits.

- 2: Profiles to be rendered to scale (or, at least, with a reasonable degree of error within scale).
-- ie: Combos of 1-to-1 scale or accurately mismatched (eg: akin to blending kits in 1/72 and 1/48).

Would that work?
