The Falls of Clyde - the Iron Hull


Frame assembly platform, made from high grade aluminium and provided with connections to the resistance soldering unit, together with frame clamps, bent to match the curve of the hull side and deck rise fore & aft from the hull half model.  Also showing the change of direction of the iron frames in the centre of the hull.  The flange faces back from the forward frames, and forwards on the rear frames, so as to facilitate riveting the ships plates onto a flat surface.  Additional matched wheels have also been made to match the closer spacing of the ships plating to plating rivet heads.
