World War Brick Hartford is happening on July 22-24 at the Radisson Hotel Cromwell, just outside Hartford Connecticut. We are a family-friendly gathering of LEGO® fans who enjoy building and sharing our historic and military models. World War Brick has been happening since 2011 and is organized by Brickmania LLC, the first name in custom military building kits for the LEGO enthusiasts, with special help from our sponsors BrickArms and GI Brick.
For the general public:
We open our doors on Saturday and Sunday for a public exhibition, show off the great creations gathered at World War Brick. Heres what to expect during public hours At World War Brick Hartford:
You will see some unbelievably awesome creations made from LEGO bricks including these massive show-stoppers:
- A 26 foot long model of the battleship USS Missouri, as she appeared in Tokyo Bay for the surrender ceremony that ended World War II. It features hundreds of custom made U.S. Navy and Imperial Japanese Army minifigures. It is escorted by an equally impressive model of the destroyer USS Nicholas, which accompanied the Missouri into Tokyo Bay.
