Master model-maker Robby Eddy created a 1/16”-scale model of the 289-foot (88-meter) clipper yacht *Maltese Falcon. The model, while only 18” long, took more than 2,100 hours to construct over the course of a year and a half. Eddy has been building models all his life. He started with building Revelle plastic models, then went to die-cast automobiles kits, and later on to constructing custom models of yachts and architectural display models. Aside from the many self-taught skills, Rob's work focuses on the overall job, documentation of the vessel, drafting, computer design, and wood- and metal-working. Eddy’s education was obtained at Nasson College and Wentworth Institute in Boston, Massachusetts.
