Ligating large fragments into pBluescript

Has anybody got any experience of cloning quite large fragments of DNA
into plasmid vectors?
I'm trying to ligate fragments of 12kB and 18kb into pBluescript and
just wondered whether I was simply wasting my time or if it was possible
after all.
Any comments, tips or advice welcome.

Thanks in advance
