Sydney - You’re never too old to love Lego and an increasing number of car enthusiasts seem to be realising this, judging by the increasing prevalence of full-sized car models made from the venerable plastic building blocks.
One of the best examples we’ve seen in a while is this Honda Civic Type R, which has been painstakingly put together for the upcoming 2019 Lego Masters Show, which is a building competition held in Australia.
The Type R was created by a team of nine enthusiasts led by Lego certified professional Ryan McNaught. But it’s the numbers that make this story truly impressive as it took them over 1300 hours to create the car from the ground up, using more than 320 000 Lego bricks.
As you could imagine, the build was fraught with technical challenges that the team had to overcome, as McNaught explains:
“We’ve loved the challenge of this project. The car is shaped with a considerable amount of curved lines, making it a tough but interesting build. From the working lights and indicators to intricate Lego Honda logos, the detail on the model has been a fun one for us to work on.”
