    Hey everybody. I was wondering if anyone had any had any kitbashes that someone like myself could do. I've done a lot of Gundam and Zoid models, so I know my way around an exacto knife.

    My problem is that I have absolutely zero painting abilities. I really enjoyed the "Armorhide Trailer" project that was posted here about six months ago (where you got the free stickers from ReproLabels for doing it). Is there anything else like that around that a noob like me could do? Maybe weapons mods from Sigma Six figures, or fixes to Alts/G1/etc.?

    though you may not have any painting abilities, there is a lot you can do.

    Dye techniques are one. You can recolor a figure by just dipping it in scalding hot water that's colored. You can also just swap parts. Then there are alwasy sticker options.

    You can do anything t oa figure and call it "Kitbashing"
