LEGO Melbourne Star

Here’s my LEGO Melbourne star observation wheel. At just over 3m in diameter it is unquestionably the most difficult thing I have ever built.
It is fully motorised using LEGO power functions using just over 30,000 bricks.
The hardest part was the maths and process in doing a 7 pointed star held by a flying buttress while being powered.

(I have no idea if there are bigger LEGO wheels around, if there is I’m yet to see one)

The model is mounted on permanent display in the gift shop after you ride the observation wheel.

The kids and I are in this shot just for scale!

The Melbourne star opens tomorrow (the 23rd of December, check it out!)
