A 10-year-old boy from Iceland who has autism built an astounding replica of the Titanic out of Legos, and now that model has found a home in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee at the Titanic Museum Attraction. Brynjar Karl Birgisson, now 15, created the 5-foot-high, 4-foot-wide Titanic model using 56,000 Legos. Birgisson developed an obsession with the ship, and he spent 11 months building the giant replica. His grandfather helped him. They even borrowed a storage room in order to have space to construct the massive project. Ultimately, they spent at least 700 hours recreating the ship.
