Model maker George bridges the gap.
George Gunn, 74, said the model of the famous 8296ft cantilever bridge connecting Edinburgh to Fife, has been a real labour of love.
He said: "It's been a lot of man hours but engineering is in my blood and has been since I was a child.
"I had been wondering what material to use for a long time, until we had our central heating system replaced.
"I looked at all this copper and thought 'the very thing'. Hundreds of pieces went into it."
George's model is now on show at an exhibition in Glenrothes.
He has already embarked on his next project - a replica of the Falkirk Wheel.
But he reckons this should only take him two years to complete.
