CUNARD MOSAIC DETAILS: Cunard was the operator of the Queen Mary and have operated passenger ships for 175 years. The Cunard mosaic is an image of one of Cunard’s classic posters from the golden age of travel, between the wars, when the trans-Atlantic route was one of the most prestigious travel routes in the World. The mosaic is of a Cunard poster from this era that depicts the epic scale and majesty of a Cunard liner at sea. The mosaic is built up from over 20,000 individual square LEGO elements to form the overall image.
Building Stations for Kids
Kids will love building their own version of the Queen Mary to one of the four building stations available in the display room. My kids didn’t want to leave as they were having so much fun using their imagination.
We had the chance to get to know Commodore Everett. He even sat with the kids and talked with them while they built legos.
Interview with a Master Builder
The LEGO company certifies only a few official model makers; Bright Bricks is located in England and is a well-established creative resource. “Companies from around the world hire us to interpret their products or brand using LEGO bricks. But, in this case, we decided to build the Queen Mary for our own satisfaction. It required four professional builders and over 250,000 individual LEGO bricks. It took almost four months to complete the project,” Diment added.
