Steps

About 2 or 3 years ago, for some unknown reason, Idecided to make an aircraft carrier out of matchsticks. Just the carrier wasn't quite enough to satisfy my boredom at the time, so I went ahead and made an entire strike force of small aircraft to be placed on/around it. Building a carrier with a transverse deck would have been way too difficult to construct because of the different length matchsticks needed. I used two materials and one tool, Wood Glue, A few hundred Matches, and a Knife. I think the best-looking model I made to go with this is the helicopter.

Sorry for the bad quality photographs, my cellphone camera has a really bad autofocus system and changing zoom is impossible.
