Matchstick Masterpiece

Titanic made from matchsticksThe ill-fated Titanic has helped a model maker sail into the record books. Mark Colling built a replica of the cruise liner using 3.5 million matchsticks. The 19ft-long (5.8 meter) model weighs almost a ton. Mark spent up to eight hours a day working on the model. He included hundreds of tiny details such as lifeboats and deckchairs. Mr Colling is now taking the ship to exhibitions and shows. He said: “I love to see people looking at it when it is on display. I have seen people laugh and people cry.”
