Toy plane

I haven’t posted anything for a while since I’m currently busy with finishing my exams projects. So I brought up a little thing from the past. Quite a few years actually (so I’m sorry about the dust ;) ).

Back in the days I loved the platform game  “Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue” (from 1999). In the third level (video here) there is this toy plane which I happened to like even though I hated the level of some reason. So I made a small scale model in normal Lego:

LDraw file (with steps) is available from my Brickshelf account. (direct link)

I haven’t really made a lot of small scale models (and therefore certainly don’t have any skills with it yet) however this is the only type of  Lego other than Technics/Mindstorms that still interests me today. For example this model of Suiseiseki from Rozen Maiden is just fascinating. (Well, perhaps I just don’t want to admit that I don’t have enough Lego…)

I just recently got my hands got my hands on a SLR camera however since I’m quite new to this I didn’t manage to get the depth of field correctly.  Well, I will figure it out someday… EDIT: someday was apparently the day after that as I found out how to change the setting by accident…
