More fun with matches

Back in February we looked at Michael Arndt and his racing car made of matches.

I think he's just been upstaged.

A man has spent ten years building a replica of Tower Bridge out of 1.6million matches - two years longer than the real thing.

Michael Williams crafted the 6ft-long structure every evening over a decade and it now has 156 working lights.

The replica of the real London landmark, which is 800ft long, has two household bulbs lighting up the two towers, and an illuminated 52 gun galleon underneath.

The 'water' is filled with lights.

More pictures and the rest of the story at the link. He's putting the model up for sale - but I don't know how easy it would be to ship it over to the USA!
