Matchstick Truck Models > Matchbox Cars

by Paul Strauss

Croatian artist Đorđe Balać has a talent for building things from matchsticks. Now, I’m not talking about some little models you might find gathering dust at a flea market. No, these matchstick models are truly epic.

Balac spends countless hours building his realistic models of industrial vehicles from literally hundreds of thousands of matchsticks.

My personal favorite is the Mercedes cement mixer shown above.

He’s also built bulldozers and several other trucks, but his masterwork is his Liebherr LTM 11200 crane model, made from over 175,000 individual matchsticks and held together with over 44 pounds of glue, and finished with almost 18 pounds of varnish.
