Reblogged from Among The Joshua Trees:
Yamato Class. Very detailed and quite impressive in my view. It must have taken some serious time and planning to get it right. The details are even down to the Chrysanthemum on the bow.

Wow. Just — wow.
Now for some Lego SB2C’s ….
That guy has an understanding wife? Now how to get it out of the living room….I guess this was the battleship that spent most of its time on the dock (because of lack of fuel and supporting ships?) – sunk off Okinawa in a suicide mission. I remember reading about that – the last mission, with all the crew knowing they would most likely die.
A common misconception is that she never engaged in a surface battle with her guns before being sunk by Aircraft. Not exactly true. She did engage in a surface action with USN warships. Just not with other capital ships like Battleships and Cruisers. She engaged Task Force Taffy 3 in the Battle off Samar.
She was chased off the field by the torpedoes of the Destroyer USS Johnston. Bracketed by a torpedo spread, she turned away to comb the torpedoes. She could just have easily turned towards. By turning away however her speed and the torpedoes were fairly matched and so she was stuck for some 10 minutes steaming away from the battle with torpedoes practically station keeping to her port and starboard.
The worst curse (not swear word, but wish for harm) I’ve yet heard on the internet, “I hope you step on a Lego!”

Pretty cool. I’ve seen some amazing things done with Legos… this is one of ‘em.
Now someone needs to make a Lego Big Badger Boat!
If the Mythbusters can make a huge ball out of them, anything is possible!
I’ve been advised by my nephew, who’s involved in patenting R&D products at AutoDesk, that “Not to get all technical, but Lego has software that allows them to figure out the pieces needed given a 3D model.”
Who’d a thunk it? (Although, I’m sure that putting it all together is a whole different deal.) Very cool, for sure.
