Lego Master Working on 100,000 Piece, 21-Foot Battleship Yamato Model

Japanese Lego builder Jun Brick (think that's his real name?) has been hard at work at a 1:40 model of the famous Battleship Yamato for over a year. This gargantuan model puts the Millennium Falcon to shame, stretching out for over 20 feet and using a whopping 100,000 pieces. He posts a metric ton of photos on his site as he works on it, giving us a really cool look at each step of the process and just how much work goes into building a model of this size. Impressive, to say the least.

This kind of reminds me of that time my uncle Fred decided that he'd build a boat in the garage from a kit and he got the biggest one he could get and it took up almost all the space in the garage and you had to kind of squeeze past it, which was hard to do 'cause it took a long time and also because by the time you grabbed the rake and squeezed past it again you were pretty wonky from all the epoxy fumes, but when it was done and ready for rigging uncle Fred had to get it out into the driveway it turned out that the boat was too big to fit through the garage door by a few inches on each side and when he tried to twist it a little to get it through it was too tall for the doorway even after he took off the garage door and he cussed a lot as he settled on sawing notches in the sides of the doorway as my aunt Phyllis laughed her ass off from the back porch, snapping pictures with the instamatic to send to aunt Elaine and uncle Al because who would believe it, anyhow.
