The ‘Falls of Clyde’ an Iron four masted ship built by Russell & Co. of Port Glasgow in 1878 for the Falls Line. The project is to be build in 1/96th scale, frame for frame, rivet for rivet in brass and nickel silver, using (almost) the same techniques as used to produce the original full size ship a 40 Frame centre section to show how an iron ship was built. Plus to build a Half Model, as created for every ship built at that time.  Together with a fully rigged waterline model, to show her in all her glory. - A project for my retirement.  Gerald A.
