Fisherman Spends 3 Years Building 24-ft-long LEGO USS Missouri

Scottish fisherman Jim McDonough has created a 1:40 scale replica of WWII vessel the USS Missouri. Here's what he had to say:

 

At last its just about finished a few pieces and rigging but until i have a better place to display it,it will have to do. nearly 3 years building this one,10,000s of parts,as for size it now stands 4ft 6 inches high.3ft wide and a massive 24ft 3 inches long,not counted the studs LOL.The stern crane is motorized,and the bridge has lights as you have seen in my other updates.it was a struggle to get the turrets to sit with the weight of them but bricks on their side worked well in the end,this is the ww2 version with as many guns as it had at the wars end, big thanks to Raymond Drum who gave me the idea to build this and his vast knowledge has been most helpful as has all your comments and advice in the past,Also Michael K whose missouri was very hepful to building this one.i could post 100s of photos of this as its my most detailed and biggest by far.hope you all like it,planning the saratoga cv3 in the near future which is around the same size as this, - MOC Pages
