Check out these awesome pictures of the 152,455 piece Lego model of a Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine that was debuted at the Farnborough International Airshow this week. This elaborate structure has more than 160 separate engine components that are arranged just like the engine that is used to power the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
It is believed that this model, which took 4 people approximately 8 weeks to complete might actually be the most complicated Lego machine that has ever been created.
The cut out of the replica shows all the little intricacies of the model which was created with painstaking attention to detail, in fact, the people who created it used the original CAD plans of the engine as their guide.
The model weighs a staggering 677 pounds/377 kilograms and is 6.56 feet/ 2 meters long but is only half the size of the actual Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine.
It seems like Lego fanatics are constantly thinking of new and innovative ways to use those colorful little building blocks to create some fascinating replicas of real-life machines. Earlier in the year Japanese Astronaut Satoshi Furukawa made a Lego replica of the International Space Station whilst in space aboard the station.
To commemorate what would have been internationally renowned computer scientist Alan Turing 100th birthday Jeroen van den Bos and Davy Landman of the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica built a working LEGO model of the Turing Machine, which was one of his most famous works!
