This stunning model of one of Britain's finest stately homes has been painstakingly restored after languishing in a store room for the last seven years.<br />
<br />
The 1/25 scale model of Longleat House in Wiltshire was commissioned by the 6th Marquess of Bath in 1988 and went on display in the 16th Century mansion's butchery.<br />
<br />
But it was broken up into 50 pieces and put into storage when the home underwent renovations several years ago.<br />
<br />
Kim Ward, 60, and his six man team have spent the past two months restoring the model to its former glory.
