I'd say go with either Pimp or BashPimp, up to you. I think BashPimp looks ever so slightly better, but they both look really nice. I don't like the Full KitBash because it discards the most defining feature of Scy's visual design, the blockiness. If it's a geometric shape, mostly straight lines and hard angles with an oversized pointy engine, it looks like a Scy ship. Full KitBash just has too many curves.

I like the "pimped" front  and the "bash-pimped" rear.

Either Pimped or Bash+Pimped with a preference for Pimped

Only thing i don't like (or at least: would miss) is the loss of variety/detail in the paintjob (blue+white vs all blue)

Very cool designs, the new engine assembly looks very good.

I'd say try the Original front and the bash pimped rear for that true SCY feel and coloring.

I agree with ValkyriaL, go with the original front half of the ship, and use the engine/back from the Bash+Pimped design.

What about Bash+Pimped back but with the 4 "bits" at the sides gray instead of blue? Would that work?

That is exactly what I want to get somewhat rid of...

WELP! If getting rid of SCY aesthetics is what you're going for (Kornheiser_WHY.jpg) then go full kitbash.

Though i personally find it quite ugly, many ships already are very bulbous and curvy.

Spoiler
(and if we want to go full sperg, SCY is stealthy lorewise and curves make you ping on radars like crazy because no matter where it is in relation to you, with curves the radar will end up always finding a flat surface to reflect on)

Well, if we want to go full sperg, the sector mustn't be using radars because it would be slow: the detection method is obviously faster than the speed of light. Besides that method of detection would be the worst in space because with the power required your ship would be a beacon for targeting, and passive detection of heat is twice as fast.

Also the phase ships have an active method to decrease their signature, thus using similar shapes and hull style can only fit better with the lore...

(that being said, the first style was blocky to remind modern day stealth ships)

   Because at some point I have to settle on something, and that last version wasn't so bad, here is the new look of the Scyan ships. Also I never intended to get rid of the stripes, and I think they look even better that way instead of blue on grey. Although now I have that weird feeling of dej√†-vu when looking at Scy and Diable... Red, Blue, hum...

   Anyway this is more work than either full kitbash or just partial rework, not to mention almost all ships will need some serious modifications now, so don't expect anything to come out soon.

   And since it's a good occasion to trim down the less useful stuff, I intend to remove several ships: The Megaera phase frigate, the Euryale command destroyer, the three Manticore support cruiser (the carrier will probably be redone from scratch) and probably the Balius Tanker. To compensate I'm thinking about adding two more interesting ships (more on that later), and eventually adding back the Manticores' built-in weapons as modular ones.

So amazingly viewtiful.. T_T they look awesomelicious! But definitely I will miss Manticores, especially the MIRV ones. I always had in my fleet at least one of these and actually at times I used one of them as a flagship, standing behind the lines and raining the enemies with missiles :3 Every 10 seconds, my enemies cringed! MWAHAHAHAHA... ahem.
