Video: World's largest lego model put on display in New York

A Star Wars X-wing Starfighter made from 5.3 million bricks has been put on display in Times Square in New York.

It weighs almost 46,000 pounds and took 32 builders about 17,000 hours to put together.

 

“I built pretty big things with Lego, but this is the biggest ever,” said Lego master builder Erik Varszegi at an unveiling ceremony.

 

“It's a life-size version,” he added.

 

The building of the spaceship got underway a year ago in the Czech Republic, and was then later shipped over to America.

 

The model starts off in Times Square and will then move on to different states.
