A few of my kitbashes are named based on the donor kits:
The USS Val'Walo was made from a Gundam called a Val-Walo.
The cargo shuttle named Voyager was made from the Aurora cartoon Fantastic Voyage Voyager.
The Klingon Mer'Q 9 battlecruiser was made from the Pegasus Models Mercury 9 spaceship.
The Perry was made from a Revell Perry Rhodan model.
Starbase 51, "Pegasus Base," is made of Pegasus Models flying saucers.
The USS Ascender is so-named because it's backwards (Ass-Ender).
The USS Tiburon looks shark-like to me.
USS Peregrine is a bird-of-prey.
