This, simply put, is probably the best Lego creation you will see this year.
It’s the work of MaydayArtist, and it’s a perfect scale-replica of the 1577 English Warship ‘Revenge’ that fought (and defeated) the Spanish Armada that was 9 months in the making. It’s all Lego apart from the sails and rigging and was built with the help of a wooden model ship-builder.
The level of detail is breathtakingly real so we’ve included an extra image in this blog post, but you really need to see the close up shots on the Eurobricks’ Pirate forum here, it’s a new benchmark in Lego shipbuilding. For our French readers, the ‘Revenge’ will also be shown at the ‘Festibriques’ show in Paris this year.
