Rolls-Royce displays jet engine made of Legos
The Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 jet engine can spin at 1,200 miles per hour and deliver a mighty 75,000 pounds of thrust — unless it’s made of Lego bricks.
A version of the British manufacturer’s most up-to-date aircraft engine made up of more than 152,000 toy bricks was among the more unusual displays at this year’s Farnborough Air Show in the UK.
The half-scale model, complete with spinning Lego turbines, took specialist company BrightBricks eight weeks to construct and is made up entirely of standard Lego parts.
Hey – someone had to do it for the first time.
