Over 9,000 LEGO bricks complete an epic Chinese dragon

LEGO dragons are always great to see, but HUGE ones are even better! This is the case with this incredible, 150 centimeter long (nearly 60 inch) Chinese style dragon built by Ming Jin, and the beast is also currently the only LEGO creation on their photostream. The build has beautiful curvature achieved by a rather simple segmented body design, with subtle angles between individual segments.

There are cheese slopes covering most of the body, giving an impression of scales and other details like spikes and flame pieces as characteristic Asian dragon features. While legs and to some extent the head possibly expose too much of the inner structure, the beautiful long body more than carries the creation.
