Fort Ticonderoga... in Lego

Yes, you heard right: Fort Ticonderoga -- or Carillon, if you prefer -- in Lego!  Four and a half years' worth of construction, apparently, by a certain Starbuck Starfighter (presumably not his real name) and his son (Starbuck Starfighter Jr?).  I include a photo of the real thing, to give you a sense of how remarkably accurate the creation is.  It was nominated in the "best large building" category at Brickworld Chicago.  I don't know who won, but the judges were clearly mistaken in not awarding the prize to these guys.  
Many more pictures here.



  1. From the bygones days of my youth searching for a single piece to make my pirate ship look good, I can tell you that a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and copious cursing went into this.

  2. I do hope that there wasn't too much cursing, actually. This being a father & son project and all...

  3. It could have been period cursing, to complete the mise en scène. It makes learning fun!
