I often think to myself: this should be made in LEGO! One of the most recent instances was discovering the Falkirk Wheel. This is a rotating boat lift in Scotland that can transport boats from the Forth & Clyde Canal to the Union Canal, covering a height difference of 35 meter. It’s a massive construction and a true marvel of engineering.
So I had a look on LEGO Ideas and found this model by JustJ0e. It’s recreated the Falkirk Wheel in LEGO Architecture style, including a few boats. I would have loved if it also had the rotating function, but maybe that’s something LEGO designers can add if this Idea will make it into the review.
I built this because I have always been fascinated by bridges and unique architecture. The engineering required to build and manage this bridge is impressive. I believe this would make a great set because there are others like me who like to appreciate and admire engineering feats.
