This is a collection of photographs of the matchstick models painstakingly created by eighty-one (81) year old PHILLIP WARREN, of Blandford Forum in Dorset, England.

For the best effect, please enjoy viewing this slide show in "FULL SCREEN" mode.

The majority of the photographs in this collection are copied from the MODEL SHIP GALLERY web site, and the newspaper report can be found in the Thursday 26 August 2010 issue of the DAILY MAIL, at that British newspaper's web site.

Building these models is now a lost art, for the required wooden matchboxes are no longer manufactured.

The collection is not insured, because there's no possible way it could ever be replaced.

In addition, here is an automated video series from the YOU TUBE web site, which I encourage you to watch in "FULL SCREEN" mode:

I was accidentally alerted to this by a forwarded e-mail (even though I almost NEVER read forwarded e-mails!) from an old friend, Sergeant First Class John Erik Kershaw, United States Army (Retired), who resides at the historic Ol' Soldiers' Home in Washington, D.C.
