Kurt Kuhn visits Walt Disney World’s STAR WARS LAUNCH BAY

You may have noticed a few weeks have gone by since I have updated Modeler Magic. I was in Florida, enjoying time with Family, and very much enjoying it all at Walt Disney World. One of the great features that Disney now has is Star Wars….. and like it’s younger sibling, Disneyland in California, Disney World Hollywood Studios also has a Launch Bay featuring all kinds of Star Wars Replica Goodies. Built by many of the artists shown on this site, they are always a pleasure to view. There are even some differences between the models shown at each location, and which models are shown at all. Not to mention life sized props. While there I witnessed a young family, with their daughter and son dressed up for the Mickey Halloween party that Disney puts on through the month of October in it’s USA locations. The Smith Family! They are amazing people, and kind enough to allow me to photograph them to show here on Modeler Magic. I could not resist… a tiny Rey and BB-8…. fantastic! Thank you Smith Family!

Here are a few photographs quickly taken. My apology for the lighting, reflections, and lack of detail in the photos. I used my Galaxy 8+ and the rooms were darkened to show the models in a gallery setting. There are some reflections, however, that are kind of cool looking! LOL.

I had placed up the Disneyland Launch Bay photos a while back, just after it opened…. but I think I will go back to get better photos. In any case… here we have what we have, and we are lucky things have opened up as much as they have so that we are able to photograph these wonderful artworks.

I will soon be placing up a load of photos that are of Disney Made miniatures… including beautiful dioramas of the new Star Wars and Toy Story Lands that are currently being built. I will try to have them ready for the next update.

Thank you all for your continued excellence and participation in this art form. It is YOU that make this art form what it is… and I am grateful of YOU.
