Kitbash from Lightyear
Posted by Josh Ryder on Thursday, September 22, 2022 4:32 PM

 I wanted to recreate one of the ships from Lightyear as I tried my hand at kitbashing for the first time. Is everything screen-accurate and picture perfect? Not even close. But the freedom to build what you'd like without the need for pesky instructions is beyond fantastic.

I started with a Raptor frame that I pitched both wings down. I had an Osprey kit that contributed engines and everything else went well from there.

Ohhhhhhhh that looks awesome!!!

Frankly to be honest I haven't seen any of the 'Toy Story' movies but that's so cool looking- amazing work!

Aha!

          Fun Ain't it? No rules, just dive in and build it your way!(Sounds like a Burger commercial!) I sadly, to some folks, always pick on Armor kits when I am in the mood.

It's not truly a Toy Story movie; it's supposed to be the movie that inspired the toy (Buzz Lightyear) that starred in the Toy Story movie.

Toy Story 1-3 are very good movies. Toy Story 4 is forgettable and Lightyear kinda failed. The climatic scene of Toy Story 3 can bring a tear to your eye if you're not careful.

Your ship resembles some of those Macross F-14-looking jet/robots. Nice job.
