Hmmm...

Well to be fair I cannot speak to the specific monies in the show but the penny pinchers will save money wherever they can... such as using old models that will get the job done. Even tho there will be people who go "Uhhh, wait. Isnt that....?": I would put the occasional kit-bashing in that category also.

Also, money saved could be used for better things in other places like sets, props, and more elaborate SFX shots. Everything has a budget and the more whiz-bang a show gets the tighter the money. Oh and of course when you have to renegotiate actors salaries that puts more strain on things. LaO comes to mind as a recent example even tho its a very popular show. Of course the economy is quite different now.
