A Lego otaku indulged his twin passions gigantic battleships and plastic bricks, and six years later this is the result: the WWII super-battleship Yamato, rendered in Lego.

It is in total 6.6m long, a metre in girth at its widest, and weighs 150kg. 200,000 Lego parts went into its construction.

The Yamato, with the other ships of its class the largest and most heavily armed battleships ever built, was finally sunk by carrier borne aircraft in 1945, whilst en route to Okinawa to attack invading American armies.

You can see the full details of its construction on the creator’s homepage.

Presumably he has no plans to sail to Okinawa to expel the Americans…
