A British arts group called the En!gma Crew has formed LondonBRC, whose goal is to build a model of London in the Nevada desert, and then burn it down. And they need your help.

The group is looking to erect rough approximations of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the Houses of Parliament. Check out their Indiegogo page for more information.
