Car from 956,000 Matchsticks


Man builds full scale F1 Car from 956,000 matchsticks.

Michael Arndt is a man of matchsticks. Over the course of six years, using 956,000 matchsticks, 1686 tubes of glue, and at least three different varieties of mustache, he built a full-scale replica of a McLaren 4/14 F1 Car at a cost around 6,000 Euro ($8,725). The giant model takes up Arndt’s entire kitchen and probably his social life. It can be broken down into 45 parts for easy transport to various matchstick-builders conventions.

    Comment by Diane struck me as very rude.
    This man put so much into his project and deserves the praise.Who is she to say he needs to get out more?
    One bad apple spoils the bunch.
    This man is gifted……too bad Diane was not.
    A person does not have to get out to be happy and have a head on their shoulders.
    If you can not say something nice……..say nothing at all.
