Matchstick Titanic

The BBC reports on Welshman Mark Colling’s efforts to build a 19ft-long matchstick model of Titanic. The article also includes a slideshow of Mr. Colling’s earlier models, among them a Mississippi River paddlewheel steamer and a WWII-era Spitfire fighter plane. Colling’s choice of subjects provides a great example of the historical sensibilities that drive so much hobbyist modeling, from ships to airplanes, railroads, cars, and cathedrals.
