Fan Constructs Man Utd’s Stadium Out Of Matchsticks
Christopher Files / 8 years ago
I know what you’re thinking; well this is going to be rubbish! I bet you’re imagining a 10-inch mish mash of a project, well, no, stick with it and you might be pleasantly surprised with the outcome. A Man Utd fan has dedicated a whopping 450 hours of his life/time, which is roughly 19 full days spread over 3 months with the aim of building the famous Old Trafford stadium out of Lego? No Matchsticks.
Below are three images that convey the construction and also the extent and detail level of this project, as you can see, it is pretty amazing. The replica is almost identical to that of the current real life stadium layout and even includes the recently installed “Sir Alex Ferguson” statue which overlooks (much like the real version did during David Moyes tenure) outside the main entrance of the ground. The colour scheme is also extremely detailed and comparable to that of the current Old Trafford ground.
The skills, eye for detail and patience required to execute such a project is mind-blowing and opens up the possibility for a profession in replica model building. I am sure there will be a market for commission pieces from excited fans who would like a mini replica stadium built to pay homage to their favourite football team. The old school board game Subbuteo would have been very different if you had a chance to play in a stadium of this quality.
