The LEGO ship is said to be a 1: 200 scale model, which has recreated minute details such as the ship’s deck, the promenade deck and also the swimming pool.
Mike Psiaki, the design master of the LEGO Group, recently said in a statement: “At the time of its launch, the Titanic was the pinnacle of nautical engineering, the largest moving vehicle ever created. It has been an incredible journey to recreate this iconic ship from LEGO bricks, using blueprints created over a century ago.
