Man Makes Tower Bridge Out Of 1.6 Million Matches
Michael Williams spent 10 painstaking years designing and building a famous London landmark...out of matchsticks.
The 41-year-old road layer from Shoebury in Essex created a complete replica of London's Tower Bridge out of 1.6million matches.
He spent every evening after work lovingly crafting the 6ft-long structure which twinkles with 156 working lights.
The replica has two household bulbs lighting up the two towers and an illuminated 52 gun galleon underneath. It is lit up with long-life LED bulbs which last for 100,000 hours.
He now plans to sell the model to fund a studio and his next top secret project.
