Matchstick Models 

A listing of large models made entirely of matchsticks. Large models. Some have as many as 100,000 matchsticks and more. That's dedication. Some are pictured, some were sold to other displays, but they have a museum in Iowa where some are on display.

The Ultimate "Garage Sale" 

It has been said that the Soviet military threw nothing away. Now, in an effort to raise some hard currency, the Red Army is selling off their stocks of left over gear from "The Great Patriotic War." They expect that museums will go after much of the gear, but the average collectors are going for some of the stuff, too. Everythign from rifles pistols and other small arms, up through T-34 and T-54 tanks. Just the thing to park in the front yard.
