From the Time Machine’s Glovebox: The World’s Smallest Model of the World’s Biggest Bookstore

Of all the projects I’ve worked on during the 10 years this blog has been active, the HO-scale, scratchbuilt model of Toronto’s long gone World’s Biggest Bookstore is my favourite. The model is basically just a big styrene box with an equally big sign. But, what a sign. The sign is what this project is all about, and I enjoyed building it. It’s also quite impressive whether or not all the little fibre optic ‘bulbs’ are lit. Over the years Toronto has seen it’s share a lot of iconic buildings like this one, and I hope to build a few more of the ones that have some significance to me.
