Lego Experts Build Life-Size Volkswagen Camper Van with 400,000 pieces of LEGO

Two expert Lego builders have crafted a life-sized Volkswagen camper van using 400,000 bricks. Unveiled at the f.re.e leisure and travel fair in Munich, the impressive model reportedly took just six weeks to build.

Certified Lego master model maker Rene Hoffmeister and Pascal Lenhard used 3d images to figure out how many bricks were necessary to complete the model, but somehow ended up being 20,000 transparent pieces short to construct the vehicle’s windows.

Once they got ahold of the parts, Hoffmeister and Lenhard had to work day and night to finish the assembly.

It’s fair to say the final project turned out impressively though. It’s more than five meters long, 1.9m wide and even features a pop-up roof that takes the overall height to above three meters. Inside the van, there’s also an array of fittings crafted from the brick-building system.
