    Actually, Wal-Mart's meager offerings include a quite good starter pack. It includes a knife, a few brushes, two types of model glue and a set of paints.

    All you really need apart from that is a few junkers and an idea.

    A dremel is highly recommended for kitbashing. It will be your most important tool, so get a good one with lots of attachments.
