hull plating and rivetting
I bought some MM plans of Clochlight puffer by Cousins.I need but some next help, please. When browsing through puffer pages,I found that the more pages,(ships and their models), the more basic questions appeared.
As to puffer construction details I have several questions then .
Firstly..as to rivet size for hull plating , and technique of plating in particular.
How looked like the rivet heads in history..and size of metal plates(iron and steel) in, e.g. last years of 19 century, and in twenties last century??
Are there some big differences?
The rivet heads were mainly round, or flat??.How big were the distances between rivets(spacing)? I can see , it seems to me .., rather caricatures of riveting at some models...I am not sure, but the rivet heads there are many times rather highly oversized...How big the rivets were in reality????(diameter...?? ) Let me the next questions for the next time too, please. Tom
