So far, so good. A collection of fifteen AG vehicles in my collection. Planning my sixteenth, presently. If you like to see more photos of any of these models in detail, just let me know. All are heavily kit-bashed and scratch built models.

Thanks. Majority of the finished models were derived from kit models I used to kitbash and scratch built to complete the models. All are heavily modified kits, with scratch built parts, as well as household parts. Other parts were taken from toy parts and what-nots.

Really cool! Wow, some of those kitbashes should be sold to the masses as resin or plastic kits by manufacturers as they're nothing the Sci-Fi kit market has, unfortunately.

At first I thought that they were actual kits and surely wanted to know where you bought them from. Knowing that they're kitbashes means that you have something very unique in this world.

Are any of them close to kits that can be bought online?

Hi Peter. I thank you for your comments. Most og the builds started off as kits with heavy mods. I can confidently say that you can buy a few of those models and modify them. But the easiest one of all of them would be the military hover version. That particular one was made with 98% of the kits own parts. I basically just re-arranged the parts until I was satisfied of the placement of all the parts. Let me know if you need more answers and I'll be glad to help.
