Matchstick Tower Bridge Up for Bid


Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Misc. Tech, Toys


Description

Artist Michael Williams has created a London Tower Bridge out of 1.6 million matchsticks by using photos and images in books. The scaled-down perfectly proportioned creation is 800 ft. long and has an illuminated 52 gun galleon underneath. The water is also filled with lights. While it took him a decade to build, Williams now wants to sell the clever structure to fund a studio. Head over to his site if you want to make a bid. Smokers and pyromaniacs should probably not apply.

Thats neat to do with matchsticks. That took alot of them to build it to. I’m not that creative so thats something I wouldnt be able to do.
