Supreme LEGO-master of the universe Jerac from Łódź, Poland came up with the idea to build the biggest, most accurate LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer ever. Last November he began his plan and on June 1st, 2014 he finished the masterpiece. I have to say, I’m all sorts of impressed.
More than 40,000 bricks. 110 pounds (50 kilograms). 6.62 feet long (2.02 meters). 4.1 feet wide (1.25 meters). 1.9 feet tall (58 centimeters). Eight months of design and building. Those are the stats for the biggest, most accurate Lego Imperial Star Destroyer ever built. It’s truly amazing.
This model of the Chimaera—the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer used by Grand Admiral Thrawn in the Star Wars extended universe—is not only amazing because of its massive size. It’s the perfection and accuracy of this Lego machine is one of the most impressive Lego builds I’ve ever seen. Every single detail was resolved with masterful skill, using a technique called SNOT—or Studs Not On the Top. If you notice, you won’t see any of the typical Lego bricks studs.
Looking at the details of this SNOT design I’m not sure how he did it. If I were to try you’d see me out int he workshop with big boards of glued-together LEGOs that I was cutting up on the table saw. I think that might be considered cheating. Though I’m not sure if this kind of giant LEGO model making has rules like that.
