This model of the Harry S Truman warship is a 350-pound, 200,000 brick beast. Talk about being a work of art--it comes complete with electrical lights, moving elevators and radar dishes.
It was, not surprisingly, built by a German. It took him $20,000 on parts, a year and lots of arguments at home to get it finished. It is now a LEGO show piece touring around Europe, so that will get him away from the wife who is fed up with him.
