In an Anglo-American collaboration the Kent-based Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) has teamed up with monster truck entertainment firm Monster Jam to build a giant, life-size, scale K'Nex model of the famous Grave Digger (pictured).

It took the RBLI’s Assembly Team, which includes people with disabilities and health conditions, over 1,000 hours to connect and was constructed from nearly a quarter of a million K’Nex pieces. The model is now on tour with Monster Jam.

The project has been the subject of a 12-minute short film which you can view below.

‪"A Monster Of A Challenge"‬ documents the truck's construction in Kent to its final reveal at a Monster Jam event in Texas, America, and aims to explain how despite the challenges faced by people with disabilities, no project is too big.

In their 15 year partnership the RBLI and K’Nex have built a variety of large-scale models.

David Church, Head of Assembly at RBLI said: “It’s been such an exciting project for us. The team here have really come together and shown that despite the challenges faced by their disabilities, no project is too big.”
