Largest Lego Titanic replica comes to Tennessee

Brynjar Karl Bigisson’s Titanic replica is 26 feet long and 5 feet tall

It took more than 11 months and 700 hours worth of attention to detail, but a 10-year-old boy from Iceland built the world's largest Lego Titanic replica which will now be on display in the U.S.

Brynjar Karl Birgisson originally used 56,000 bricks to make the eight-metre replica, but "after the front part broke, we had to buy more, taking it to a total of around 65,000", the 15-year-old said.

"One hundred twenty tubes of insane glue were used", he said.

Brynjar has previously travelled to the U.S. to deliver a Kids TED talk about his autism and the Titanic replica project. It weighs over 2,800 kilograms (6,173 pounds) and measures 8.44 meters (27.7 feet) long, 1.33 meters (4.36 feet) wide and 1.53 meters (five feet) tall.

Bigisson says the project not only helped him live out a dream, it also helped in his daily life as he admits he had trouble communicating in school because of his autism.

"When I started the building process, I had a person helping me in school in every step that I took, but today, I'm studying without any support".

To celebrate the launch of a new 18-deck, 151,695-ton cruise ship, a Hong Kong tourism company chose to mark the occasion by building a large-scale replica out of LEGO.
