Playing with Matches

What do you get when you combine oodles of free time, more than a million matches, and a dream? Well, this:

A matchstick modeller is a fifth of the way to creating a five million-match replica of the ill-fated liner Titanic.

Mark Colling is aiming for a world record with a 19ft-long ship, complete with an 8ft match model of the iceberg which sunk the Titanic in 1912.

And people think my hobbies are strange.

Includes pictures!
