BY THE time Aaron Parker set sail on the Spirit of Tasmania from his Melbourne home he already knew it more intricately than most.

Packed up in a box beside him was a Lego replica of the ship.

``I was living in Devonport at the time I decided to build it,'' Mr Parker said at yesterday's Brixhibition.

``There's something familiar in it.''

The Lego train builder said it was his biggest project to date.

It is the first time the TAZ-Brick member has exhibited in Launceston.

Fellow first-time exhibitor Luke Morrisby said his favourite Lego on show was a plane.

The 12-year-old said the pieces on display were joined by dozens more at his house, where he enjoys a dedicated Lego room.

``I started when I was five and keep collecting and building on from that,'' the Youngtown boy said.

Yesterday marked the final day of the popular Brixhibition, which was held at Kings Meadows High School.

More than 6000 people poured through the doors of the two-day event organised by TAZ-Brick and Kings Meadows Lions Club.

Proceeds were donated to Autism Tasmania and City Mission.
