Cruisin’ for a Bruisin’

'Mogami' Japanese Light Cruiser

It’s been a while since an Elf returned to The Lego Car Blog HQ, but today a tired looking fellow arrived towing this behind him. But what is it you ask? Well, it’s not a car as you can see, but what it lacks in wheels it makes up for in guns. This is the WWII Japanese Light Cruiser ‘Mogami’, replicated perfectly in 1:125 scale. One of four similar ships built, the Mogami was over 600ft in length and armed with over 20 guns. Mark Rodrigues is the talent behind this 63 inch replica.
