What’s all the Buzz about?

Buzz Lightyear flies again in this LEGO model by Inthert aka Tom Loftus, bringing us a custom take on the movie starfighter previously depicted in the official set 76832 XL-15 Spaceship. Strap into your cockpit, because there’s oodles of great building techniques on display in this model. From the outside, the techniques are so smooth that they’re almost hard to see: The red stripes on the wings are separated by white ingots; the winglets are made from claws; and there are tonnes and tonnes of cheese slopes to help create all the angles of the fighter.

Tom has also kindly provided us with in-progress pictures of the internals of the fighter. I’m sure I can’t even describe the half of it. There’s boatloads of various brackets and 1×1 bricks with studs on the side. There’s also 1×2 round plates, and 1×2 round plates with bars. Finally I’ll point out that there’s a few little minifigure utensils scattered throughout the build. See if you can find them!
