The Building of the Queen Anne's Revenge.

Or how I sunk 5+ hours into building a humongous Lego creation. It was worth every second too. While we had our Lego Star Wars Advent Calender this was a whole different animal putting together a 1000+ piece model. I'm just glad it came out perfectly and I wasn't missing any pieces out of the box.

Needless to say I was completely enthralled in this process and noted to the wife that I missed doing this stuff. While video games, tabletop RPGs and board games are my primary sources of entertainment Legos are a close second. I just need space to display these.

Here's a few photos showing the growth of the project over the course of the evening.
