If you wander down to Brixhibition on Sunday, you will likely see plenty of Star War themed Lego pieces on show.
But one piece stands out – while the 22.5 kilogram model is certainly science-fiction, it’s not Star Wars.
A massive free-standing model of a Battlestar Galactica fighter plane was created painstakingly over three months by its creator, known as ‘Apollo 13’.
Based on a plan he saw online in 2003, the model takes three people to move from place to place and was only fully completed in January.
The model is one of the largest on display at Brixhibition this year, alongside a two-metre replica of the Spirit of Tasmania.
Brixhibition was well attended on Saturday, with the Albert Hall packed out by mid morning Saturday.
Organiser Ken Draeger said the Launceston show was the biggest in the nation per capita, and was always well attended by thousands each year.
The show continues Sunday at the Albert Hall, with the school competition overall winner still to be judged.
