An evolution of Balsa Model Flight Simulator that was released in Early Access form in 2021, Kitbash Model Club not only include model planes but boats and now cars.
It turns out that ‘kitbashing’ is a real-world hobby, whereby you take parts from one existing kit model, and then use those to create something unique.
Thus, Kitbash Model Club is a virtual model-creation sandbox, allowing players to create air, land, and sea vehicles from a ‘huge’ variety of components. Except, unlike in real life, being good at painting or having the patience of a saint should not be required.
Once you’ve created your remote-control vehicle, you can test them within the fictional island of Wirraway – which includes highways for car testing. Plus, the sharing of vehicles and challenges will be possible via the Steam Workshop, alongside player vs player multiplayer.
The open-world environment can be explored in the sandbox mode, but there are also plans for a single-player career and the option of creating scenarios.
Filed in the ‘outrageous fun’ category, being able to fit your vehicle with paintball guns, smoke machines and rockets will be possible.
However, beneath the skin, is said to be a serious physics system and an advanced aerodynamics model.
Developed by Floating Origin, led by Felipe Falanghe (aka HarvesteR) who is the former Lead Developer of Kerbal Space Program, and published by Curve Digital, Kitbash Model Club is expected to release for PC later in 2023.
