Star Trek U.S.S. Voyager

Name of Model: Star Trek USS Voyager
Created by: Marwede
Found at:
This enormous model of Star Trek's "U.S.S. Voyager" (which you may remember as the "Enterprise"-style spaceship trying to find its way home in the series Star Trek: Voyager from some years back) is really something. The sculpted body of the ship captures all of the proper details, as far as I can tell. Although the interior is not shown, it looks like down-to-scale furnishings are skipped in favor of realistic exterior lighting. If you look closely, you can spot a LEGO TRAIN speed regulator (which you can buy somewhere). That makes it look, to me, anyway, like this is using entirely-LEGO lighting, and powering it from a wall electric outlet. Of course, all those little lights are also working with quite a few clear and translucent LEGO bricks that are sculpted into the body of the ship. Assuming that no cheating was used to make the electrical stuff work, this is quite a feat.
