    I guess this thread passed me by back in '15. Since there is a recurring unfamiliarity with the term "photobashing," I'll contribute some context:

    It may well be passť by now, but back in some day or other, the bashing of anything simply meant "mixing." I recognize the concept from my days building scale models, when kit modelers would combine parts from 2 or more kits—kitbashing— to make something that couldn't otherwise exist. An extreme example would be, say, a military helicopter with a boat-like amphibious belly section, sporting tank tracks. (I've actually seen that one.) More commonly, custom car enthusiasts would come up with creative ways to seamlessly attach the front end of one car to the rear of another. I remember seeing a 'Vette-rrari with the nose of a Stingray and the wide ass-end of a modern Testarossa. I never indulged, but I believe it was more of a workmanship challenge than anything that would have real-world meaning or purpose; I suppose much like "photobashing."
