Lego King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima unveiled
The Belgian LEGO builder Dirk Denoyelle used 100 thousand LEGO bricks to build life size models of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima. The end result can be seen in LEGO World in Jaarbeurs, Utrecht from today. Denoyelle and his team spent 600 hours working on the royal couple. Royalty expert Peter van der Vorst revealed the structure today. "The pair might still look more ideal than reality. It was impossible to find out their exact sizes. The Rijksvoorlichtingdienst could not say anything about it. That's a state secret" Denoyelle says smiling "Also at Madame Tussauds in Amsterdam I was not welcome with a ruler. An employee took a picture with me and wax figures. On the basis of my posture I approximately determined theirs. They have, I think, come out slightly thinner than in real life. But I don't think anyone will find that off-putting." Lego World is open everyday until Wednesday October 22nd from 10:00 am to 17:00 pm.
