Wonderful Pictures Collection Of Matchstick Models. Matchstick models are scale models made from matches as a hobby. Regular matches are not used, however, but a special modeling type which do not have the combustible heads, and can be bought from art and craft shops. Though before the serial production of these, actual matches were used with heads trimmed off, or kept on to add coloured detail. These models and artworks would have required a painstaking attention to details to complete. However, the final results are worth it. I actually envy these artist on their patience matchsticks and toothpicks, all these tiny parts stick together to create such pieces of art… I know that I wouldn’t even try to do something like this.
