Lego Rolls-Royce Jet Engine Made from over 150,000 Parts
The team of four people from Rolls-Royce spent eight weeks building a roughly half scale replica of one of the company's Trent 1000 jet engines. That is one of the engines that will be used on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The project used 152,455 Lego blocks.
All those blocks weighed 677 pounds and when finished the jet engine replica
measures 6.56 feet long. That's roughly half the size of the actual engine, which weighs in at 1.25 tons. The Lego model accurately represents every part of the engine from the massive fan that slurps air into the combustion chambers.
Lego is offering up for consideration a scale model of Audi’s RS5 DTM racecar. Composed of 2,000 pieces, the kit, if sold, would retail for around $200, which is a sight cheaper than the full meal deal.The post Ever wanted to own an Audi RS5 DTM racecar?

Maybe you’re someone who thinks that James Cameron’s big-budget, action-adventure Aliens is superior to the nuanced, claustrophobic, and downright terrifying predecessor directed by Ridley Scott. If you are, fine; I’ll try not to fight you about it. Instead, I’ll share these amazing recreations of scenes from Aliens featuring LEGO figures.
