His face is the picture of concentration as he painstakingly finishes off Cambodian temple Angkor Wat.

And concentration is something Stan Munro certainly doesn't lack after spending six years building famous landmarks from around the world - using six million toothpicks.

The former television presenter used more than 170 litres of glue as he worked full time on buildings such as Big Ben, Tower Bridge and The Vatican.

He has also recreated Sydney's Opera House, the Taj Mahal and Cutty Sark in 1:164 scale.

The married 38-year-old can take anything from one day to six months to make each building.
