Wooden Ships and Matchsticks

I love models (especially miniature ones!), and this is one I saw not too long ago which was pretty impressive – a Titanic ship model made entirely of matches by Tim Elkins. The ship (made of 147, 000 matches) is beautifully crafted – you’d never think that it’s made of matchsticks because of how tightly packed they are, and how well the ship has been crafted.

I love the detail on this ship – this photograph doesn’t really give justice to the size of it and the workmanship, but it does give that ethereal feel to it which I like : )
