The Panama Canal, built over 100 years ago, is rightfully considered one of the technical wonders of the world. To clearly see how it functions, now it will be enough to purchase a unique Lego set, which represents a working model of the Panama Canal.
The idea of creating a set of 1184 bricks belongs to Lorena Degracia, who is a distributor of Lego building blocks in Panama. She shared her idea with the canal manager Jorge Quijano and found support from him.
The assembled kit is a detailed replica of the Panama Canal with three levels of locks allowing ships to pass in both directions. In addition to the kit, there is a detailed description of it.
Taking into account the "Panamanian" legislative specifics, the set will be sold so far only in Panama. The first batch will be 40, 000 kits priced at $ 250. Lego's Panama Canal will become public later via eBay.
