kit-bashing
 n.— «The term for buying a kit and replacing its materials is “kit-bashing.” Kerr said Dellaquila isn’t the only kit-basher in the society; that is, members who order a kit and then throw away much of the materials in favor of their own custom additions. One member cast aside all the wood in a ship model kit and sent away for Swiss pearwood to complete his vision.» —“Model Citizen” by Tony Marrero in Spring Hill Hernando Today (Tampa, Florida) Feb. 8, 2008.
