A Scots Lego fan has received acclaim for recreating the Glasgow skyline in a bid to get the design adopted to buy in shops.

Engineer Peter Johnston put forward the concept to the Lego Ideas website, which invites suggestions for new sets.

The design features a Lego version of the University of Glasgow, Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, the Squnity Bridge and the Glasgow Science Centre Tower.


Also featured in his city highlights is a typical tenement flat, the Finnieston Crane and the Gallery of Modern Art complete with the Duke of Wellington statue.

He said: The model would be a great addition to any home with a love for Glasgow or Scotland. 


"I'd love to see this as an addition to the Architecture series so thank you so much for all your support."

It has 246 supporters and has another 363 days left to reach the 10,000 backers needed to be approved for production.

His design has received glowing reviews from those who have seen it since it was submitted three days ago.
