As a child I was essentially bought up on Lego. I had all the coolest sets including pirate ships, space shuttles and everything in-between. Every time I go into a toy shop I have to hold myself back from buying Star Wars Lego (two of my childhood favourites combined) so I really appreciated this work of art:
This half scale LEGO model of a Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 jet engine was built by Rolls-Royce and Bright Bricks for last weekend’s Farnsborough Air Show in the UK. The model weighs 676 pounds, is 6.5 feet long, and is made of 152,455 LEGO bricks.
