This 65,000-Piece LEGO Concorde Jet Features Seats, Luggage Inside

If you were blown away by the enormous (and depressing) model of a sinking Titanic made with more than 120,000 LEGO bricks, then prepare to add this equally impressive LEGO Air France Concorde plane -- complete with a cutaway revealing its interior -- to the list of LEGO megastructures you wish you could build (and play with) right now.

Designed and constructed by LEGO master Ryan McNaught of thebrickman.com, the enormous model of the long-defunct supersonic aircraft is composed of more than 65,000 pieces and took 188 hours to complete. From end to end, the Concorde spans a staggering 13ft (4m), which is easier to grasp thanks to photos posted on Twitter from the recent Brickvention (LEGO convention) in Australia, where it was on display:

But what's likely the model's coolest feature is a full-length cutaway that reveals the LEGO Concorde's cockpit, seating, lavatories, fuel storage, and cargo areas. And based on the pictures, it appears the LEGO Concorde even includes the sad, real-life detail of zero passengers able to hop across the Atlantic in a fraction of the time.
