Built by modeler Arthur Gugick, this magnificent re-creation of India's Taj Mahal graces the pages of "Brick City," a new book of landmarks made in Lego by Warren Elsmore.
The Taj is Gugick's most complex model. It required over 28,000 bricks and over four months to build. It measures 25.5 inches tall, but some of its dimensions were deliberately distorted to make it appear more accurate in a film production that commissioned it.
The station has six fully working platforms with Lego Eurostar trains and passengers moving in and out, as well as features such as a champagne bar. It has been shown at LegoWorld Copenhagen and numerous other Lego exhibitions.
About 250,000 bricks went into the construction, which took 300 hours. Most of them were 1x1 pieces. Check it out in Elsmore's "Brick City" or in this video.
