I've seen some pretty insane LEGO creations, and I have yet to set foot in LEGO Land. So anything I see made of LEGO bricks doesn't surprise me all that much. But this 677 pound, 152,455 piece, 1:2 scale replica of a Rolls Royce Trent-1000 engine is the first of its kind in the world! Or, so they say, but who in their right mind has the time, know how, or money to build something like this and not tell anyone??? Prince?! Where's he been lately?
It doesn't just look the part, it works! Ok, so it doesn't actually take in fuel or have the ability to power anything, but it does move. The builders actually went through the CAD plans of the engine (which is used to power the Boeing 787 Dreamliner), and have arranged the 160 separate engine components just like the original.
This took 4 people 8-weeks to complete. The video below the photos shows them in action. It's really mind blowing!
