Submission + - Seven-foot long minifig-scale Serenity model is a Lego masterpiece (

quacking duck writes: Just in time for the short-lived sci-fi show Firefly's 10th anniversary, Adrian Drake has completed a 7-foot, 135-pound LEGO model of the Serenity spaceship. It took Drake 475 hours over 21 months to build, using the "official" reference blueprints.

The detail is jaw-dropping. both outside and inside where every compartment has been recreated except the engine room, which couldn't be done without compromising the model's structural integrity. The engines even pivot, ducts and drive panels can be opened and closed.

It's an amazing feat of LEGO-work, which we might be lucky enough to see in person at future conventions.
