Scratch-fiction can be fun! I remember a cool looking contraption I made out of an Airfix Scorpion hull and the floats from a Matchbox DHC-2 (?).

Well, I built a flag pole out of sprue once... Does that count?

I used to build Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 stuff ( before I got back into serious military modelling, and I once built a custom fighter plane out of a 1/72 scale Spitfire, Warhammer 'heavy bolters', scanners and a shoulder pad as a cockpit, then stuck on a tiny Sidewinder from a miniture snap-together kit underneath. It looks soooo wierd...
