Lego Creation: USS Missouri

Jim McDonough is a fisherman and naval history buff. He also appears to be a Lego master. McDonough spent the last three years building this incredibly massive replica of the USS Missouri using LEGO bricks. Aside from the giant 1:40 scale of this WWII vessel, his attention to detail is like none other.
"At last its just about finished a few pieces and rigging but until i have a better place to display it, it will have to do. nearly 3 years building this one, 10,000s of parts, as for size it now stands 4ft 6 inches high. 3ft wide and a massive 24ft 3 inches long, not counted the studs LOL. The stern crane is motorized, and the bridge has lights as you have seen in my other updates. it was a struggle to get the turrets to sit with the weight of them but bricks on their side worked well in the end, this is the ww2 version with as many guns as it had at the wars end, big thanks to Raymond Drum who gave me the idea to build this and his vast knowledge has been most helpful as has all your comments and advice in the past, Also Michael K who,s missouri was very hepful to building this one."
