Life-size Lego Honda Civic Type R revealed
To launch TV program Lego Masters on Channel 9 at the end of this month, a life-size Lego Honda Civic Type R has been built.
More than 320,000 Lego bricks were used in the construction of the life-size Honda Civic Type R which took a team of nine people more than 1300 hours to build. The full-size Civic Type R was built around a steel frame with the Lego bricks glued together. The headlights, daytime running lights, fog lights, hazard warning, brake and reversing lights all work.
“We’ve loved the challenge of this project. The car is shaped with a considerable amount of curved lines, making it a tough but interesting build. From the working lights and indicators to intricate LEGO® Honda logos, the detail on the model has been a fun one for us to work on”, said Ryan McNaught, a Lego Certified Professional.
Honda Australia Director, Stephen Collins said, “Honda is a company that is all about creativity and innovation so it’s great to support a family show that mirrors these ideals so well. Through LEGO Masters we’ll see some of the dreams of the contestants, and also fans, come to life – we’re proud to be helping drive that.”
Why a Honda Civic Type R out of lego? Simple. Honda is a sponsor of the TV show which kicks off on 28th April.
