Ford F-150 Lightning 1:1 Replica Is Made Of 320,000 Lego Bricks
Legoland Florida Resort has unveiled the latest creation in its Lego brick build fleet, a life-size Ford F-150 Lightning truck.
Built to mark the launch of Ford’s all-electric pickup truck earlier this year, the exclusive, life-size model is the result of a partnership between Legoland Florida Resort and Southern Ford Dealers. Some 320,740 Lego bricks were needed to build the Lego Ford F-150 Lightning, with the team of 15 Master Model Builders spending more than 1,600 hours to assemble the 3,730-pound (1,692-kilogram) build.
That’s a little over half the weight of the real truck, which tips the scales at up to 6,500 pounds (2,948 kilograms). A honeycomb-like skeleton helps keep the structure in place, with a steel frame embedded within preventing the truck from collapsing on itself due to the weight of the hundreds of thousands of Lego pieces. The skeleton and frame account for much of the weight.
Work started in July at the Lego Group’s US headquarters in Enfield, Connecticut, and builders were assisted by computer software in reproducing the Ford truck’s shape as accurately as possible using Lego pieces. Looking at these videos, they did a pretty good job of it.
