LEGO Battleship Yamato Completed!

Geek Culture

Yamato_2Yamato_2You really have to admire the devotion, attention to detail, and possible nascent insanity of some LEGO builders.

Back in the fall of 2007, fellow GeekDad Don Shump wrote about a 100,000-piece LEGO recreation of the Japanese battleship Yamato that was then in process. LEGO craftsman Jun Brick (which, if the Japanese classes I took nearly twenty years ago are anything to go by, is definitely not his real name) has recently completed the amazing 1:40 scale model. If you think the picture here is impressive, see the full gallery on his website (with frames, unfortunately).

I hope he likes it where it is, though, because I can’t imagine how it could successfully be moved.
