Lifesize Lego campervan created

0ff62ddf-9da4-4965-b547-c7b1cc1ec164

A lifesize T2 campervan has been constructed using 400,000 Lego bricks. This brick-built campervan, whihc has commissioned by the organisers of f.re.e (a Munich leisure and travel show) took a Lego-certified model maker Rene Hoffmeister six weeks to put together and measures in at over 5m long and 700kg.

This Lego campervan was shown at alongside a real T2 bay window camper at the f.re.e show in Munich in February 2019. The Lego model included a working pop-up roof and sliding door, along with seating, sink and cooker.

Using 3D images, Rene and his colleague calculated the precise number of bricks needed for the project. The only hitch came when they realised they were missing 20,000 clear bricks for the windows, with supplies being scarce. 

“Essentially, we would have needed a nine-day week,” recalls Hoffmeister. “However, as they don't exist, the only option was night shifts.” Hoffmeister and Lenhard therefore carried on 'playing' with their LEGO® bricks from morning to night and over the weekends in order to complete it in time for the f.re.e trade fair.

We asked whether this camper would be going on display elsewhere throughout the year and were told by the even organisers to watch this space, so keep and eye out on the f.re.e Muenchen website for updates as well as videos of the Lego camper being made.
