Leon, The Professional is one of my very favourite movies. I stumbled across it last week and have been playing it on heavy rotation ever since. Inspired by the Luc Besson movie I made this mini...



It measures 5" tall and is built upon a Graphic 45 matchbox



The inside slides out...



... for a better look at the interior.



Inside is a Madonna, bullet marked wall and two quarts of milk.



This is the apartment it is based on. That's the gorgeous Jean Reno who is very manly and has the most magnificent voice.



AND while I was drafting the little milk cartons I was looking for dummy text and started putting in quotes from the film. I ended up making this milk carton too...



... it's 6.25" tall and covered in images, quotes, facts from the film and I think it's probably one of the coolest things I've ever made  Cool There's a pdf file on my blog if you want to download it and create your own HERE

Awesome!  I love the bricks and the little pull shade on the window!  So intricate and detailed!  Great movie, too!  Cheesy

Always amazed how you can take detail from a plain box to something like this.  Smiley

Holy cow, this is amazing! You are the coolest. I love this movie, and I can't believe you got all of the details - the bullet holes in the wall, even! And that milk carton, I can't even... I'm totally going to print it out and make one. Smiley

Thanks everyone. I was worried it might be a bit too obscure but at least three people guessed what it was before I finished Smiley

I am so in love with this. The Professional is one of my all time favorite movies, and you recreated it so well! It's the plant that gets me though. It's too perfect.

It's perfect! The little details make such a difference, and I love that you can slide the room out for a closer look Smiley
