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 right here from eHobbies.
The matches are cut by means of a sharp knife and fixed together using glue, often being held in place by cardboard "formers" until the glue is dry. Many kits are available, consisting of instructions, pre-cut card formers and sufficient modeling matches for the project. A number of hobbyists prefer to build their models from scratch.
