Seven-foot long minifig-scale Serenity model is a Lego masterpiece. Adrian Drake spent 475 hours over the course of 21 months to build this painstakingly accurate model of Firefly's Serenity entirely out of Lego bricks.

The result is this 135-pound, seven-foot long, 70,000-brick beauty that looks especially shiny paired with its minifig crew.

That is a beauty.
Ekk! That's quite a model, hope he drew up plans for it. And to think, I grew up with balsa wood, rubber band powered aircraft!
Oh my. I think the only appropriate reaction here is, of course, "I'll be in my bunk."
And I thought I loved this ship the most. This guy wins for most Serenity love. It's beautiful.
Can we pay this guy to drag it to events around the US? That's awesome.

I don't want to know how much this would cost if one has to buy all the Legos for it EEK..
Do I want it? YES!! But where to put it...
stop-motion episode remakes, yes?
the details on this thing is absolutely stunning - swinging crew cabin doors?!?
"Do I want it? YES!! But where to put it..."
Krusher

My backyard.




What?
I have 3 acres. :^/
I still want one big enough for me to live in.... and a nice piece of property to put it on.... But this model would certainly be a good runner up. It is so detailed and beautiful!
Psh, I could do that...
Heh, I was moving from one image to the next through the many pics posted on the flickr page and, as the perspective changed to move around the model and then zoom inside into the bridge, I couldn't help but hear the main theme to Serenity going through my head. Such a well made model, kudos to Mr Drake.
Truly epic. Honestly, shiny doesn't seem a strong enough word, but it's certainly the most appropriate.
Oh! Little, tiny, Wash Lego man. I'm in love.
