Any idea on how it was made??

The basic body shape of the Sandcrawler's flat panels was assembled in wood and hardboard.  A thinner styrene plastic "skin" (with all the scribed surface panel details) is glued on top of that.

  What does kit bashed mean anyways.

Wow. That's certainly unusual... someone posting to the Customs forum that does NOT know what the term "kit-bashed" means. I'm not saying that to attack you. It's just an observation.

Anyhow, "kit-bashing" is a term that means to add detailing to the basic shape of a model by taking interesting parts and shapes off of existing model kit parts or even everyday household items.

It was a technique used widely by the ILM modelmakers back in 1975 and 1976 while building the models for STAR WARS.

Ok that's what I though, It's just that all the pieces on the sandcrawler look so original. Also the word kit bashe gets thrown aroun a lot.

You're right.  The term "kit-bashing" does get thrown around a lot and the meaning is getting dilluted.

I've even seen it used to refer to Hasbro action figures that are made up of body parts from previously made figures.

Thanks for the props, good buddy!

That looks so sweet.  If I lived closer to NYC, I'd definitely be over there to help you fill up that Sandcrawler!!

Your photography really does that thing justice.  I can see why you are so proud to own it.
