Classic Pastime for those with Perseverance
Matchitecture Kits are built with wood sticks called microbeams (not actual matches), which you cut, stuck and joined according to the detailed plans (included). This kit includes 5000 microbeams, 1 bottle of glue, 1 pair of tweezers, 1 microbeam cutter, 1 assembly board with acetate sheet and instructions. Assembled kit is 72" (180 cm) long.
This is an ADVANCED LEVEL model kit for experienced modelers only ages 14+.
Matchbuilding is an absorbing hobby that helps develop patience and attention to detail. Those new to this pastime should begin with smaller kits to develop the skills necessary before tackling the most intricate designs. Glue, modeler’s knife, sand paper and a precision paint brush are required tools that you provide (not included). Patience is key with matchstick modeling as you will be completing models in sections that will require drying time throughout the assembly process. The largest designs can literally take weeks or months to complete. If you are looking for a satisfying hobby that rewards you for being precise and persistent, matchstick modeling should make for a rewarding diversion.
