What's 26-feet-long, 5-feet-tall and 4-feet wide, is made from 56,000 Lego pieces and took 11 months to build? The world's largest Titanic model, of course.


15-year-old Brynjar Karl, who has autism, certainly has a lot to be proud of.

He completed building the world’s largest Titanic model at just ten-years-old. The massive boat made of Legos took roughly 700 hours for this Icelandic student to make and he's since been traveling all over the world displaying his work and telling his story.

Karl says the entire process of building his Titanic model not only helped him with his autism but also helped his peers see him as just another kid. He first started playing with the iconic children's toy when he was five-years-old, but it was after a trip to Legoland in Denmark when he got the idea to create his very own giant model.

The impressive ship can now be found at the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

We can’t wait to see what this brilliant student sets sail to do next!
