Auto Chunk covers the story of this absolutely incredible piece of work:
Rolls Royce’s Trent 1000 powers the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in real. However, the British automaker has revealed its half-sized lego model at the Farnborough International Airshow. The model is deemed as one of the most complex lego model ever made.
The lego structure of the Trent 1000 that took four people eight weeks to construct shows the intricate craftsmanship and working of the complex engine. It took 152,455 Lego bricks in total and consists of 160 separate engine components that once joined gave form to an exact half replica of the engine that weighs 307 kg and measures over two meters long and 1.5 meters wide.
