I'll take "Crazy Lego Construction Projects" for $500, Alex

You can make anything with Lego. Specifically, if you have 200,000 Lego blocks, and empty room, and 6 years with nothing to do, you can make a 1:40 scale model of the Imperial Battleship Yamato.

Don't try this at home. Unless you have 200,000 bricks, an empty room, and 6 years on your hand.

They make Lego cannons?

Wait a minute...I'm going to get a better look at DT's. :)

Impressive piece of work.

Sucky choice for background music, though. "Pirates of the Caribbean?" I think not. "Victory at Sea" would have been better.

Wolfwalker, that's a great idea.

That is pure awesome geekery right there. The scale is simply staggering.

On the other hand, you can make a F4U Corsair, the plane that sank the Yamoto, in about two hours.

One hundred planes took part in the attack that finally sank the ship.

Remember Pearl Harbor.

When I look at this, my feet hurt.

I lost track of how many times I stepped on a #^@$#% lego in the dark when my Daughter was little.

Now with the Grandbaby, it'll probably happen all over again :)
