You Sunk My Battleship

9 04 2009

While checking out Sankaku Complex after I got back from Uni this article on the front page was of great interest.
A Lego otaku has combined his passion for giant warships of steel and Lego to produce a 1/40 scale model of the famous WWII Battleship Yamato of the Japanese Imperial Fleet.

This Lego model of the Yamato is nothing short of epic measuring 6.6m long, 1 meter at its widest, weighing in at 150kg and took six years of construction to build.

It should seriously be preserved in the Lego Museum.

You can find more pics at the creator’s website.

SHIT! You gotta give those crazy otakus some credit for being so dedicated to what they love.

I wouldve given up just building the artiliery.
