You won't believe Lego's latest endeavour

Lego has produced some big sets in its time, including the Roman Colosseum and Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium. But its latest release is titanic – quite literally. More than a century after the RMS Titanic met its fate in the North Atlantic, what was the largest ship of its day is now the inspiration for the largest Lego set ever made – and perhaps also the most detailed. 

The attention to detail is incredible in the 9,090-piece 1:200 scale model of the cruise ship. Measuring 135 cm (54 inches) long, it features recreations of the Titanic's bridge, promenade deck, swimming deck and much more. In fact, it's so big that the model comes with three separate instruction booklets for it to be built in three parts and then joined together. It may well be one of Lego's most impressive creations yet (see our guide to the best Lego sets for adults for more Lego sets).
