Lego Rolls-Royce Engine Contains 152,455 Lego Pieces
Rolls-Royce has unveiled a new cut out of one of their Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines, at the Farnborough International Airshow this week. But rather than being made of steel and electronics the Trent 1000 engine is made completely of Lego.
152,455 Lego bricks to be exact and the Lego Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine weighs in at a 307 kilograms and measure 2 metres in length.
The awesome Lego scale replica is made from 160 separate engine Lego components, and it took four master Lego builders eight weeks to complete the half size model.
To create the engine the builders need to use the engines CAD drawings and rebuild everything including the fan blades from Lego, which is some feat when you think it only took them eight weeks from start to finish. Great Job!
