Visitors can view the ship consisting of an awesome 40,000 Lego pieces at the 5-star attraction's Visitor Centre in Ocean Terminal, Edinburgh.

The magnificent 1.37 scale model measures over 11 feet in length and of course, like all true Lego models, does not have a drop of glue to be seen!

Jim McDonough, age 51 used Britannia's original plans and drawings to put together his masterpiece. It took a total of 5 weeks to painstakingly build Britannia on the dining room table at the fisherman’s home.

The talented model maker is passionate about his Lego hobby and has constructed other fantastic models. Of course, he is delighted that his first professional commission was The Royal Yacht Britannia. Visitors will be amazed at the attention to detail displayed across the ship's five decks. The work is breath-taking and shows much detail including a Phantom V Rolls-Royce in its garage, and the white Baby Grand Piano in Britannia's Royal Deck Tea Room.

Interestingly, The Royal Yacht Britannia was home to The Queen and The Royal Family for over 40 years and sailed over one million miles around the world.

Britannia has been awarded Scotland's Best Visitor Attraction for 10 years in a row and in TripAdvisor's top 3 UK landmark attractions for two years. The display is part of VisitScotland's themed Year of Innovation, Architecture & Design. Visitors viewing the Britannia model will find it a memorable experience.
