Lego has a website and most importantly, they have a CAD program where you can design and assemble the plan in 3d.

It is a truly remarkable program

That's one way to get Legos. I don't know what happened to "BrickBay," though. Maybe eBay had a problem with it. There are lots of Lego sales on there too, but not on the scale of individual bricks.

ehhh, I would have been impressed if he built the airc raft carrier to the same kind of detail only on a larger scale by using Duplo blocks which were the kiddie lego blocks.

That is amazing. I wonder what the model weights. I also wonder where does he keep this model. You would need a fair size boat trailer to haul it (that would make quite a site going down the highway).

Okay, Mr. GrumpyPants...you must stepped on a Lego, barefooted, in the dark...

I think this is quit impressive (from someone who has a son who leaves a trail of Lego's thru the house...)

Yes indeedy it does. But lets just hope he keeps busy with bricks and blocks for the rest of his formative years.

He (I am sure) picked them up on a site called Bricklink (www.bricklink.com). It is a site where you can buy and sell lego bricks. It would be impossible to get large amounts of bricks from Lego (you can buy some bricks in bulk but it is expensive and they do not offer all colors and shapes).

Holy frijoles! “Awesome” doesn’t quite do it justice. I’m not sure what adjective would.

Oh, and with those great BIG ones, too.
