This Australian man went the extra mile to build an impressive camper out of Legos.
Ben Craig of Queensland calls himself a brick builder and with one look at his life-size replica of a 1973 Viscount Royal caravan, entirely — built using Lego bricks — his title explains itself.
In fact, the full-size caravan, equipped with kitchen supplies, electricity and even running water, made Craig the winner of a Guinness World Record.
“We've got 288,630 bricks in the model,” Craig said in an interview with Network Ten.
The caravan Craig built in his garage even has a bed.
“Stiff,” Craig said while describing the "mattress." “It’s a Lego bed – it’s designed to hold weight but it is very, very straight.”
He explained the massive structure took more than 540 hours, or about five months, to build — and he recruited a team of volunteers, including his two young children, to help him.
It also cost more than $100,000 AUD, or $72,000, to build when the real deal would have cost about $2,000.
The Lego caravan is currently on display, but Craig and his team hope to hit the road, bringing the model caravan to parks all around Australia.
