No [livejournal.com profile] owenandrews we can't build this in the HODO.

Besides where would we put the darn thing, it would have to go in the back yard
and it would take up half of it.

The Bros. Brick brings word that Jumpei Mitsui's six-year project, the minifig-scale Battleship Yamato, is finally complete.

Length: 6.6 meters (22 feet) from bow to stern
Width: 1 meter (3 feet) at the widest point midship
Scale: 1/40
Time to complete: 6 years, 4 months
Parts: 200,000 LEGO elements
Weight: 150 kilograms (330 pounds)

I went from the BoingBoing link to the Brick Bros. page to the builder's GeoCities page. The shots with the entire crew complement on deck blew me away.
