A new LEGO Ideas project has bridged the gap to 10,000 supporters

The next LEGO Ideas review stage continues to grow as a huge Scottish project has reached the coveted 10,000 supporters mark. 

Forth Bridge from michaeldineen7 is the latest LEGO Ideas project to pass into the review stage, proposing a lengthy build of the famous Scottish bridge. 

The Forth Bridge is Scotland’s sixth World Heritage Site and is one of the most famous balanced cantilever bridges in the world. The designer of this project has described the hurdles he had to overcome when it came to recreating the landmark. 

When it came to the sheer scale of the real-life location, michaeldineen7 chose to submit just one of the three portions of the bridge as the project, to make it more practical to display. He does imagine that should the project become a reality, fans of the real-life 2.4-kilometre-long bridge will be able to put three of the set together to form the slightly shorter 1.45-metre replica. 

The project took four months to design and uses no new elements. However, it does use new colours of existing bricks to capture the red steel of Forth Bridge. The Twitter account for the landmark shared the project just a few days ago, potentially causing the surge in support that brought this build one step closer to reality.

This is the 21st project in what is becoming a very full LEGO Ideas review stage. The full list of projects in the current round are as follows: 

Forth Bridge
A Nice Day at the Farm
The Castle of Brickwood Forest
Baba Yaga
