Geek of the Week: Lord of The Rings fan makes Amazing Model of Frodo Baggins' home

30 year old Maddie Chambers a hardcore Lord of the Rings fan spent a year of her life building an incredible miniature model of Frodo Baggins home. The hobbits Bag End cottage is where the entire LOTR trilogy begins and ends.

Chambers made everything in the model by hand, from the portraits on the walls to the household furniture and vegetable patch in the garden. Every little detail is faithful to the way author Tolkien and filmmaker Jackson have depicted the hobbits Middle Earth home. 

Here are the details about what is included in the model.

There is a tiny one-inch version of the Baggins family tree framed on one of the walls, an even smaller, fully accurate map of Middle Earth and even notes in Frodo's 'Elvish' handwriting littering the hobbits lounge.

The kitchen is stocked with miniaturised food and utensils and a barrel bearing a longbottom leaf label the ale drunk by the hobbits in the record-breaking films.

Every scrap of furniture been created from scratch and duvets, rugs and towels mean any tiny hobbits could live in comfort.

There is also a shelf of microscopic books on offer and beautiful dresser drawers and wardrobes to help fashion-conscious elves look the part.

I wish there were more detailed pictures of the above model, but I couldn't fin any online yet. Chambers told the Telagraph why she made it,

This all began when I was a young child and read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings for the first time. I was about ten years old and I was instantly hooked by this magical world. I have read the trilogy at least 20 times since and each time it still holds as much wonder as the first time.

It takes a lot of time, patience and commitment to do something like this, and Chambers did a fantastic job! It looks really cool. What do you all think?
