Kids and space ships go hand in hand, which is why so many of us fondly remember Lego set #1682, the Space Shuttle Launch, released 27 years ago. Last month Adam Woodworth created a tiny drone version of Lego's shuttle that could fly indoors, but now he's created a larger version that can soar through the skylike an RC plane.
Lego's master builders are known for constructing some of the most gorgeous, complex statues of iconic characters you'll ever see using nothing but thousands and thousands of little plastic bricks.
