A FIFE man has created his own mini marvel of engineering in the shape of a replica Forth Bridge in his back garden.
When Paul Hewitt bought his Glenrothes home, the little burn flowing through the grounds was a big part of its appeal.
In a remarkable labour of love, Paul has lovingly created an 8ft long replica of the Forth Bridge, complete with lights.
He said he was pretty proud of his handiwork.
Paul, 46, who served his time as a plater, fabricated the model marvel of Victorian engineering himself from scratch.
A couple of his friends who are welders then helped him join the model bridge together.
The resulting construction has become an unlikely internet sensation.
“It’s a real talking point, and from the reaction on Twitter I’ve not heard of anyone else who has done something like this,” said Paul.
“I even got a comment from the Forth Bridges about the type of paint they use, if I wanted to paint it the same colour.”
But Paul insisted he was not going to build any more bridges.
“It’s a real talking point, but I’ve no plans for anything else,” he said.
