Seven-foot-long LEGO Halo starship is out of this world

It's been a long time since we've seen a titanic LEGO starship this mesmerizing. HALO fans will immediately recognize it as the UNSC Spirit of Fire.

Not only is Mark Kelso's LEGO UNSC Spirit of Fire massive — seven-feet long — but it also took about four years to build. Obviously the project was an on/off one, but that's still a long time if you think about it.

Kelso is no stranger to building large LEGO masterpieces. He previously made a six-foot-long model of the Invisible Hand, a starship from the Star Wars.

Most impressive is the sheer detail on this bad boy:

"One of the things I think I was over the moon (pun intended) about with this space ship was the level of detail. The ultimate goal was to eliminate nearly every stud, giving this creation the appearance of a scale model. I'm callin' it a win."

Stunning as his creation is, we're a little bummed Kelso didn't share the dirty stats on exact brick count (other than "more than six") and the weight of the thing, which clearly isn't a lightweight. We do know the UNSC Spirit of Fire has a height of 85 studs and a width of 70 studs, though.

Either way, take a look at the gallery below. It's arguably the best DIY project you'll see all week.
