LEGO Sinking Titanic

At Brickvention in 2010 I built a 250,000 brick cutaway model of the Love Boat – from the 1980’s TV show of the same name.

 

One of my favourite models of all time, it really hit home how cool a cutaway model can be, as the pioneer of this display technique I have since replicated it in many other models.

 

What was funny was that people who had no idea about the love boat automatically assumed as it was a big ship that it was the Titanic, which apart from being a ship had nothing else in common with it, colour, size, shape etc so hopefully this time, people can’t mistake this model for being the love boat!

 

This model breaks a lot of normal brick building conventions, its sheer size and of course the angle it is on, together with the slice made for a significant amount of challenges, which with a lot of planning were overcome.

It is approximately 120,000 Bricks and took over 250 hours to complete.

Production started on December 19th 2015 and was finished on January the 12th 2016. Just in time for Brickvention 2016

 

Built by Myself, Mitchell Kruik and Clay Mellington.

 

The model also has an awesome sinking lighting system design by Rob Hendrix at Lifelights
