Harry S. Truman Aircraft Carrier - Lego Style

Can you imagine the time put into such a project?

The size is incredible.
There is a small lego man and this dwarfs over it.
I wonder if this was built to scale.

It really is fascinating.

The detail is amazing!

By the looks of it, this whole Aircraft Carrier fills the room it is built in.

Some facts:
Made by Malle Hawking (Weebleleezer). It is about 5m long, 1,40m wide and the height is about 1,20m. It contains over 200,000 Bricks and weighs over 160 Kilos and a five digit amount of costs. Building time was over one year and it will finish end of March 06. It has electrical lights on deck, hangar and aircrafts. Moveable Elevators and radar dishes and finally a motorized catapult!

The cost was in the 5 digits, wow.

I mean, WOW!

The detail is just amazing.

I would love to see a side-by-side comparison of the lego version and the real thing.

Just incredible.
