Battlestar Galactica Ship Built Entirely With LEGO® Bricks

EntSun News/10753809
Brick artist Brandon Griffith uses over 29,000 LEGO® pieces to create this sci-fi icon!

LOS ANGELES - Oct. 11, 2018 - EntSun -- The iconic Battlestar Galactica BSG-75 has been painstakingly recreated by brick artist Brandon Griffith using over 29,000 LEGO® pieces. Measuring 47" long by 18" wide, the ship took over 300 hours to complete. At 1:1210 scale, this sci-fi icon features custom printed bricks by Citizen Brick to create specific details such as the dorsal emblem as well as working lights by Brickstuff in the engines and flight pods.

As a big fan of Battlestar Galactica, Brandon realized that "there have been several models of Vipers and other ships built out of LEGO®, but I felt the BSG needed some representation. This was a passion project of mine."

"When building a ship from a beloved sci-fi show as this," Brandon notes "details are important! The biggest detail was nailing the correct proportions of all the different sections of the ship.  It was important to me that when viewed, you would see angles of the ship that you would commonly see in the show and those angles would not only appear familiar, but evoke some joy of a memory when watching the show."
