Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first Soyuz flight with a stunning minifig-scale version of the legendary spacecraft

1 Share

Japanese builder KEI ABE isn’t just an expert on the history of early space exploration, but also nails the construction of Russian Soyuz spacecraft in LEGO bricks. He started this amazing set back in March, and now a whole fleet of Soyuz ships is ready for countless space missions.

This incredible rocket even includes the various stages, and the manned capsules fit neatly within the outer hull.

Vast surfaces of exposed studs lend an interesting effect to the model, and it’s so hard not to fall for some small, yet very pretty details. The builder’s Flickr album is a perfect place to explore each build and compare them with their prototypes side by side. And although the scale is different, this Russian marvel would make the perfect counterpart to LEGO’s official Saturn V rocket.

Giant LEGO F4U Corsair

1 Share

One of the latest and greatest propeller-driven aircraft of WW2 is surely the F4U Corsair. The American fighter is instantly recognizable with its inverted gull wing. Brought to life in LEGO by Patrick MAGO this monster of a model is built at a scale of roughly 1:10. It has a wingspan of 1 meter and weighs in at a hefty 6 kg (13 pounds).

It took Patrick approximately 10 months to build the model, and he had to redesign it no less than 3 times during the process to deal with the weight. Beyond the structure itself, a big challenge in such a build is the limited selection of dark blue parts available.

The hardest refresh requires both a Mac keyboard and a Windows keyboard as a security measure, like how missile launch systems require two keys to be turned at once.
