Lego Serenity

Adrian Drake spent 475 hours over the course of 21 months to build this painstakingly accurate model of Firefly's Serenity entirely out of Lego bricks. It is currently on display at Brickfair Virginia.

I thought this post was going to be about the Lego Serenity Prayer:

God grant me the serenity to accept there's some pieces I haven't got,
The courage to substitute pieces that might work in their place,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Awesome rendition of Serenity. I love it when people do things to the minifig scale! Moreso than a model that was rendered in perfect scale it expresses to my lego-familiar mind a far more accurate version of the human scale of something big.

And PeterMcDermott, I'll see you Lego Serenity Prayer and raise the one I seemed to yell at my brother when we were kids.

God grant me the serenity to accept that there's some pieces I haven't got,
The courage to substitute pieces that might work in their place,
And the wisdom to at least match up the freakin' colors because there is NO WAY that I am going to have a black and blue lego spaceship with some stupid white bricks in there! NO! The colors match or we build something else entirely!!

Did a piece just fall off my ship?

For some reason, I really like that the tag on the "vital statistics" sheet says, "Adrian Drake, 37".

maybe that's because i'm 37

Somebody made an accurate scale model of Serenity with LEGO?

I'll be in my bunk.

I love this man for ensuring that, inside Lego Serenity, Lego Wash had his toy dinosaur to keep him company.

*sniff*

I miss Wash.
