Building A 13ft Tall LEGO Saturn V

Last weekend the National Space Centre in Leicester celebrated the 50th anniversary of the launch of the Saturn 9 rocket. One of the activities taking place as part of the attractions ‘Gumdrop Sunday’ event was a live build of a huge LEGO® Saturn V rocket. Visitors to the Space Centre helped Brickish members Jon and gary, to build the 1/32 scale LEGO Saturn V model. At just over 13ft in height, the structure is one of the largest Saturn V models ever created, contains around 50,000 elements and is much bigger than the LEGO Ideas set. Don’t worry if you couldn’t help build the model, as it will be on display in the Space Oddities: Apollo 50 exhibition for the next few weeks, so you’ll be able to see it in person at the Space Centres annual Brickish Weekend event, which takes place on March 16th and 17th.
