I was a huge fan of Lego when i was a little kid! Man, if I could've chosen any set as a child it would've been this one!

Nice picture!

Technically, the A380 program is early--Airbus never specified if it was lego plane or not.

If the LEGO model can carry 550 passenger 8000nm, then Airbus should outsource construction to the LEGO folks.

Hope they used some sort of glue to hold it all together, it would suck if it started to fall apart from the weight.

Nice pictures, thanks for sharing them.

Do they have more aircraft models on display?

I went there years ago, and all I can remember are lots and lots of Lego trains!

Go for it. Your models look better than the ones created by the Lego company.  Just don't hijack the thread.  

BTW Legoguy, I thought at first this thread was started by you.

Yeah, lego seems to look better when it gets bigger.

I'd love to see them try and fit 500 lego people inside that SQ A380... I imagine it would be quite difficult.  Wink

I think it is neat to see someone at home build LEGO planes beside Legoland. I went with my family to 2 Legoland (Carlsbad, California and Gunzburg, Germany) and there is an airport at Legoland in Gunzburg. You should go Legoland to see for yourself. There are alot of trains and cities (buildings) other than airport.
