The Titanic (remastered feat. Lego)
One hundred and six years after the maiden voyage of the original “RMS Titanic”, a Lego replica of the British passenger liner made it safely to the United States. This time the ship was not built by Harland and Wolff in Belfast, but by 15-year-old Brynjar Karl Birgisson from Iceland. Originally using 56,000 bricks, but after a little accident 65,000 to make it, the result measures eight metres, rendering it roughly 33 times smaller than the original. The Titanic’s plans were scaled down so that the ship could accommodate the 4 cm Lego figurines.

The Danish toy company showed mercy on the teenager’s pocket money, granting him a discount on some of the bricks needed for the project. This one might actually survive a collision with an iceberg – Birgisson used 120 tubes of crazy glue to keep his Titanic together.
