    956,000 matchsticks + too much time = obessive F1 fan

    Just seen this on another forum and wanted you guys to see this!!!


    956,000 matchsticks + too much time = obessive F1 fan



    We all have different ways that we spend our time and money, but probably nothing quite like how Michael Arndt spent 6000 Euros and six years. The matchstick master built a full scale Mercedes-McLaren F1 car in his kitchen using 956,000 matchsticks and 1686 tubes of glue. The car can even be taken apart for easy transportation, which is good since at some point Arndt might want to leave his parent's house.

    I doubt it is made from matchsticks! Looks like a good carpenter though!

    may leave his parent's house, but he won't be leaving his own little world anytime soon I doubt - what a nutcase! makes you wonder if he woke up one morning and thought to himself "you know what, I'm going to start making an F1 car out of matchsticks and waste the next 5 years or so..."

    am I the only one who thinks it'd be cool to fit a playstation steering wheel/pedals etc and have a proper F1 gaming "chair"???
