A quiet Angus village is the centre of Scotland’s secret boatbuilding industry.
While it took five years and 10,000 people to assemble the HMS Queen Elizabeth at Rosyth, fisherman Jim McDonough has assembled his own warship in three and all by himself.
Where some fishermen take up putting ships in a bottle as a hobby, Jim decided to scale his 45-year obsession up a little.
His garage is crammed with a flotilla of battleships, aircraft carriers, planes, fishing vessels and landing craft, each one painstakingly built from Lego.
The most recent addition is a 24-foot scale recreation of the USS Missouri, which took three years and hundreds of thousands of bricks to build.
This 1:40 scale vessel is moored beside the ill-fated USS Arizona, sunk at Pearl Harbor, and a Japanese carrier replete with lines of Zero fighters.
The 51-year-old reckons his latest project was going to be the largest Lego-built vessel in the world but an American has since completed a similar vessel on a larger scale.
“I think the biggest in the world is a few inches longer, but when I started building mine three years ago it was probably the biggest,” he said.
“I don’t use glue and everything can be taken apart.
“If you go to Legoland it’s all glued together, which to me is cheating because anyone can glue stuff together.
“When Lego was invented I was about four or five and have kept buying it since then,” he added.
“But we’re running out of space and need a bigger house and bigger garage to house it all.”
