Yeah, but there'd be more left over so you could reuse most (if not all) of the parts. :)

"Made entirely by hand" lest anyone be confused and think a robotic machine assembled it.

I know what you mean, but look at thing differently.

I've seen amazing things made form LEGO'S, and this is one of them. One "Made By Hand"

In the States we consider Legos toys, but in the UK and many European countries they consider them as educational objects used to expand a student's critical thinking skills.

Having taught Primary School in England for a year on a Fulbright Exchange, I found that a massive collection of Legos and a Lego table was a staple in every classroom around the country. Starting with the grade F1 (knidergarten) The class is given a weekly assignment to build a project. When you have been trained to expand your thought process thru Legos, this is what you end up with as an adult.

Impressive...I think if children see this and find this was made with a toy they use...they could be inspired to make greater inventions with unlimited dreams!

I was six years old and living in England when I got my first Lego set and I cannot tell you how many hours I played with those little plastic blocks. I think this is a great project for both Rolls Royce and for Lego..

Hmmm.. I gotta wonder. If this is what they use to teach European kids assembly techniques, could it possibly explain some of the problems Airbus is having? Just kidding, but still... ?

That explains why legos are so expensive. When you're competing to purchase them against government agencies with debt spending accounts, that forces the demand and price up.
