Seen here refusing to pull dude's finger, this is a model of Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from those Harry Potter books made by Patrick Acton (who also did this matchstick Minas Tirith). "Damn GW, two Potter posts in one day? You're making my wand flutter!" I know, that was my goal. *pointing* LOOK EVERYBODY -- THIS DUDE'S GETTING EXCITED ABOUT A F***ING HARRY POTTER MODEL!
If you thought you built something that was impressive when you were younger, you probably shouldn't show it to Patrick Acton.
The matchstick pioneer and builder has created the most awesome replica of the Hogwarts School...It took Patrick three years and 15 gallons of wood glue to put it all together.
Gosh, I hope they didn't cut down the Tree of Gondor to make all those matchsticks. No? Wrong franchise? Woopsie doopsie. But seriously, three years? That's a long-ass time to work on something. I would've opted to make a Play-doh model in an afternoon AND EAT IT AFTERWARD. "Is that why there's a rainbow of leftover Play-Doh in the garbage?" Haha, that's not leftover.
Hit the jump for a bunch more shots.
Thanks again to Trevor, who, for two tips in one day, gets two shoutouts. This is one of them, it's not very good.
