dalek_matchsticksDo you think you’re a Doctor Who fan? Hey, I thought I was one… that is, until I read about this guy, who took two years to built a Dalek out of matchsticks.

Wow. But I can’t help wondering: 480,000 matchsticks plus 3 coats of varnish? I don’t remember Daleks being particularly flammable, but if an open flame gets near that one it’ll make the Purge of Skaro look like a walk down the Grand Park on Raxacoricofallapatorius.

Tip o’ the sonic screwdriver to IVAN3MAN.
