  • Lego Battleship Yamato Is Biggest Lego Ship Ever

    I didn't get a chance to post about the Lego Jesus which was constructed, but I figured this would interest all of you, there are several pictures of the battleship on the website.

    Lego Battleship Yamato Is Biggest Lego Ship Ever

    Like its real counterpart, this Battleship Yamato is the biggest Lego ship ever constructed. At 22 feet long, it took 6 years and 4 months to complete by one of our Lego Minifig contest winners.

    The Yamato—along with her sister ship Musashi—was the largest battleship ever constructed: 862 feet and 10 inches long and 121 feet long at its widest point. Made by Jumpei Mitsui, the Lego version was constructed at minifig scale (1/40), which is an amazing task that resulted in these specs:

    • 22 feet long.
    • 3 feet wide.
    • 330 pounds.
    • More than 200,000 Lego pieces.

    And of course, it looks amazing:

    Haha!
    I read that article this morning and was going to post it in the 10th forum.
    Bunch of us are lego nuts.

    I really want one of these:
    Collectible Lego Wind Turbine

    But not for $150, which is the cheapest I have seen it.
