While the rest of us toil away at day jobs and try to squeeze in a bit of LEGO building in the evenings and weekends, Dan Siskind runs Brickmania full time, continuing to lead his company’s LEGO design team even while he brings on other great designers. Dan’s latest personal design project has been a full-size minifig-scale version of John F. Kennedy’s World War II torpedo boat, PT-109. Dan’s model includes over 4,000 pieces and measures 27 inches (over 68 cm) long, with a crew of thirteen custom-printed minifigures.
The deck has all the necessary battle stations to fend off Japanese aircraft in the South Pacific, with anti-aircraft guns hand-injected by Will Chapman of BrickArms.
The interior under the top deck is also fully detailed, with bunks and heads.
I’m really impressed with the design of the engine room, with a pair of Packard engines driving the propellors.
As with Dan’s other designs, PT-109 will be available as a custom kit from Brickmania.
