Well, it just had to happen - a LEGO replay of Felix Baumgartner's supersonic high jump.

We're not quite sure what scale this model is, as estimates of LEGO's manikins range from around 1:30 to 1:40. Whatever, this is a fun piece of video making to promote the Austrian Model Maker's Fair.

Great stuff!

Note that the vid is a cunning viral which seems to have worked. Well, at least it's around the internet and on show here, so top marks to ad agency Ogilvy Vienna, who were responsible for it.

The Modellbau Messe will be held on October 25-28. Here's a link if you want to take a quick look, plus there's a version of the video with 'Space Control' audio.
