Kai, in a previous thread, here, it seemed that "scratchbuilding" and "kit bashing" were acknowledged as separate terms.

If so, then it seems that putting a Fujimi body on an HRS chassis would be "kit bashing", but putting the same body on a handbuilt chassis would be "scratchbuilding". In other words, the origin of the chassis seems to dictate how people view the two terms.

Personally, I think it gets a bit greyer than that, since one might take an RTR chassis, modify it extensively to fit a kit body, add many new parts, and end up with something that ressembles none of it's origins. Deciding where "kit bashing" turns into "scratchbuilding" is not necessarily a cut-and-dried issue.

Still, I guess the two terms are the best delineation we have.
