    This is such a simply stunning real life piece. Nothing over the top or underwhelming at all for the matter. The sheer amount of stickers however is what I feel kills it for many especially considering how much of an ‘expert’ build it is. Regardless, I love how absolutely spot on this is and its use of special techniques here & there.

    I’m just a little confused on what the color used here is. He says it is “Medium Azure” in the designer video while past Maersk sets have used a special “Maersk Blue”. (Look up previous Maersk Container ships on BrickLink and you’ll see the unique color listed.) I think it would be better if they did decide on going with medium azure instead of such a rare hue otherwise you would need to buy a ton of this set just for it.

      couldn’t agree more about the decals. Ive passed on more than a few sets because I hate the decals. I feel they cheapen any set theyre included in. however, I mainly collect minifigs, so its not too much of an issue for me.
      that ship does look very nice though.

        I think there must be something like over 128 stickers in total for this build. Ouch. I can’t even fathom trying to keep a perfectly steady hand for all of them. It is disappointing cause the set looks like a perfect scale model kit. Then again I don’t know in what way they could have been able to print the details seeing how just about every sticker goes across a few bricks.

        On a different note, I’m more of a minifigure collector and parts hoarder in general so this would be one of those sets I would just build without appying any stickers for the experience and then take it apart to go into some other project (whatever that is).
