They spent a month and a half constructing this enormous and fully detailed model of the Helicarrier. At 140cm x 80cm it’s twice the size of the official LEGO set, and contains five times as many pieces.
“Before I started to build it, the most annoying thing was collecting parts and classifying them. Then we used Technic beams to sketch out the skeleton of the carrier, which needed to be strong enough to hold everything together. Technic beams were also a great solution for the supporting yellow columns, the front of the carrier, and the four turbine engines.”
“Another challenge was the flying deck, built from lateral-facing plates to make it glossy and detailed; it looks simple, but was a large math task to calculate how to match the pattern on the real thing.”
This impressive model is currently on display in a LEGO store in Taipei.
“I had design to it to be easy to assemble and disassemble, so it would be easy to transport. For large creations, transportation is always an big issue. Therefore I built it in modules. For example, the body of carrier can be separated into three separate sections. The entire carrier is made up of 14 sections.”
