Bluestar13 has been announced as grand prize winner, who will get exclusive Manchester United merchandise, 10272 Old Trafford – Manchester United, 10270 Bookshop and 10255 Assembly Square. His winning build is a map of Manchester, with Old Trafford at the centre.
The builder writes: “Manchester United has been with Manchester since its inception. While Old Trafford has changed and Manchester has changed, the fact that United is with Manchester has never changed. Now it is a symbol of Manchester. So it depicts Old Trafford and the surrounding city.”
