Japanese LEGO craftsman Jun Brick is recreating the famous Japanese battleship Yamato in LEGO (the real WWII-era one, not the space battleship).

Battleship Yamato: Built by third year college student, Jumpei Mitsui, used over 200,000 legos, took 6 years, 4 months to build, is 22 feet long and weighs 330 lbs.

He's documented his build-in-progress on his site, which in some ways may be more interesting in the final product, as you can see how much work must go into the superstructure infrastructure necessary to support such a large scale model. Construction on the Yamato began seventy years ago; design work had begun three years earlier.
