When Jumpei Mitsui was a boy, he wondered how long the Japanese Warship Yamato would be if a model of it were built from LEGO bricks.
Jumpei answered his own question by building a 2,000 LEGO brick model of the Yamato.
The Yamoto model is 1/40 scale and weighs more than 330 pounds and measures over 21’-7" from bow to stern. It is over a yard across at the widest point of the ship.
Jumpei Mitsui finished the LEGO Yamato on April 9, 2009 after more than 6 years of construction.
