This is the best LEGO 5-foot-long replica of the NCC-1701 USS Enterprise I have ever seen, The detail and the size of the thing is just superb. It was created by Chris Melby over the course of 8 months using 18,000 LEGO bricks. it is not about money when it comes to build something like this, It is actually the patience and pure passion needed for such projects.
“I realized that to truly capture the essence of something complex with bricks, it would have to be with layers. So, with that idea in hand, I slaved back and forth in these key areas to find the ultimate combination of structure and style, grain and layer, until I was finally satisfied I had represented this iconic vessel.”
