Seen during my visit to Farnborough Airshow in the UK:

I have to say I'm impressed. Most of the large LEGO sculptures I've seen up close have just been composed of vertically stacked bricks, but these guys got a little more creative with their construction techniques.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

These are the kind of pics I show to people who think Lego is just for kids.

First of all - that jet engine is utterly awesome.

Secondly - I used to live in Farnborough so that is awesome again (I have stories of being used by the Harrier jump jets as a target in target practice when I used to work in the local ASDA down the road).
