Minas Tirith, the City of Kings from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings trilogy is painstakingly being recreated using matchsticks by wood-loving Patrick Acton. The project started in March, 2007, and Patrick expects to be completed by late 2010. Good looking, Pat, say -- mind if I do a j? *whoosh* Oh, uh-oh.

Hit the jump for several more of the progress and a link to Patrick's work-in-progress page.

Thanks to Tod, who once made a matchstick model of giant matchstick and then used it to light the world's biggest spliff. *sniff* Bob would have been so proud.
