A Super Yacht

This is the M/Y Scout, a brand new twin-screw ocean going superyacht designed by H2 Yacht Design and built by Hakvoort Shipyard for a discerning billionaire. Measuring 209ft/63m long and with a 1,400 gross tonnage the Scout is only fractionally smaller than TLCB’s own superyacht, the Seabricscuit, paid for via the ads for Disney World, clickbaity fake news sites, and garden decking (at least that’s what we’re currently seeing) that appear here on this website*.

This spectacular 1:53 scale replica of a really quite beautiful ship comes comes from previous bloggee Arjan Oude Kotte (aka Konajra) of Flickr, who has recreated the M/Y Scout from around 14,000 LEGO pieces.

At over 1.2 meters long Arjan has captured every detail of the real vessel in his model, from the intricately layered hull and custom lit decks to the discerning billionaire mini-figure having a drink on the stern! Set sail for Arjan’s M/Y Scout Flickr album to view the incredible gallery of imagery (which also includes a time-lapse video of the build) via the link above.

I’m on a Boat

Lego AMELS 180 Superyacht Driftwood

Ok, this writer isn’t on a boat. He’s on a wheelie chair in the crumbling hovel that is TLCB Towers. But it’s nice to dream.

Flickr’s Edwin Korstanje (aka VFRacingTeam) makes dreaming slightly easier with his incredible commissioned replica of the AMELS 180 Superyacht ‘Driftwood’. Built over two months from 14,000 LEGO pieces, Edwin’s 1:53 model of the 180 foot ship measures over a metre long, and both Edwin and his daughter had a tour of the real yacht as part of the commission.

There’s more to see of this spectacular commissioned build on Flickr and at the Eurobricks forum, you can read our interview with Edwin as part of the Master MOCers series via the link above, and if you’re over 18 you can watch today’s title track video here (strongest possible language warning!).
