Kirk sez, "Someone used more than 500,000 matchsticks to make a model of Hogwarts. Astounding stuff."
Acton's matchstick version of Hogwarts has been sold to an attraction in Spain called "The HOUSE OF KATMANDU", but will continue to be exhibited in Gladbrook while the finishing touches are completed. By the time the final building (the Clock Tower buidling) is finished at the end of the year it will have taken Acton nearly three years to build. Hogwarts is Acton's largest matchstick model to date. The model will be shipped to Spain before 12/31/06, so make plans to visit Matchstick Marvels before it leaves the States.
