Patience is definitely a virtue for this Star Trek fan! A Eurobricks user known as Myko built this awesome 10,000 piece LEGO model of the U.S.S. Reliant - and it took him over a year to finish. Khan used the Reliant to battle Captain Kirk in The Wrath of Khan. Myko chose to replicate this vehicle because it was easier to make. Here is what he said via Blastr:
I realised quickly that it would be impossible to contruct (sic) a large scale USS Enterprise using pure LEGO, so I had to look for another ship. The USS Reliant from Wrath of Khan is much more compact and less spindly, so it seemed a suitable candidate. Many bricklink orders and bricks later (and over a year of prototyping and building) here she is!
I personally could not spend the time putting that together, but my hat's off to Myko for doing such an awesome job. What do you think?
