LEGO Craftmanship of the Day: Erickson S-64 Air-Crane Helicopter
Check out this scale model of an Erickson S-64 Air-Crane Helicopter made out of 100,000 bricks by Ryan McNaught, a.k.a “The BrickMan” and one of 13 LEGO certified Professional builders in the world. His work will be on display at the Australian LEGO con Brickvention this weekend. Head to McNaught’s Flickr for more photos. Hat tip goes to Laughing Squid.

While yes, you are seeing missiles being launched, that is not a real helicopter. It’s a scale model of Airwolf, built by a guy named Dennis in Orange County CA, and it is insane.
If you really want to descend into a rabbit hole of wasted afternoons, watch the build videos, they’re incredible.
