No. Not sure where it's from. Saw it on FaceBook.

I remember seeing two IJN warships made out of Legos...one was the cruiser Takao. The starboard side showed the ship from the exterior, the port side from the INTERIOR. Incredible detail.

The other was a 10-foot model of the Yamato, completed with radio-controlled main and secondary turrets. I think a video of that one's on YouTube. Also amazing work.

I beg to differ. I think if they are going to go to the trouble to build lego kits they might as well make real models (even if snap together). I think it trivializes our hobby making it childish.

It also removes the imagination from real legos as well. Kids don't have to think anymore no creativity involved.

Financial win, perhaps. But I'm not impressed with this. They have the ability to make excellent models. Think of the engineering minds in Denmark. They could really soar.
