I picked it up so I'm guessing 40-60 lbs. I'll break it down and measure the breaks using a kitchen scale. I'll also count the bricks but I'm guessing 20,000 pieces +/- 5,000.

You can scrap a MOC in several different ways. My personal favourites include: Throwing it down the stairs, chucking it out a window or, my personal favourite, hacking to bits with mini chainsaws! Razz

I can safely say this is over 9000. In what, I don't know, but it's over 9000.

Simple my desire to create more things out weighs my desire to let that much Lego sit on a shelf.

For those that want to know she weighed in at 46.75 lbs. I decided not to count the pieces after it took me 7 hours today just disassemble it.

Just the one I believe. It was retractable crane cable in the main hanger. Then there are 3 cranks. Two for opening the main hanger doors and third to rotate the primary ETA.

I agree the ship did not get enough glory. But it is one of the biggest venators I've ever seen.

That looks like it will take a while to sort. Razz I am still in awe of how awesome the ship is, but it is to bad it has been scraped so soon.

You sure don't waste time. It would be a real pain to dust all 5ft of it though. It was cool to watch it progress from wip, to finished product, to parts.

Well it's in the gallery. Also note there's a spacebar on most computers, use it. Wink
