Owners of the new Lego version of the Maersk Line Triple-E might be tempted to smash a bottle of champagne against it once they’re done building, given that it’s a model of the world’s largest ship.

Alas, the model would probably smash to bits. Still, maritime fans and Lego fans alike may want to rush out in January to buy the new $ 150 set. Comprised of 1,518 bricks, the Lego Maersk Triple-E recreates the real ship with what the toy company said is a high attention to detail.
