LEGO® brick Mi-26 Helicopter
The Mil Mi-26 is a Soviet/Russian heavy transport helicopter and it is the largest
and most powerful helicopter to have gone into series production. We decided to
show the chopper off in it’s highly recognisable white and black United Nations livery.
Designed by Mitchell Kruik, the biggest design challenge for this model was working on a clean way to show the complex open clamshell doors to the cargo bay and building in strong hanging points so the model could be hung from the roof!
The model was built by Claire Ashworth and Luke Cini over 52 hours, using 8,302 LEGO® bricks
