In response to In response to 2


          

Hi Brady,

Yes, the shell plating was certainly riveted to the frames, but as you guessed the rivets are hammered almost flat against the plate (which is countersunk) and are practically invisible unless viewed from very close. For the purposes of your model I'd suggest ignoring them.

The diagram at https://archive.org/stream/steelshipstheir00waltgoog#page/n320/mode/2up shows different types of rivets; I believe number 5 shows the type we're discussing.

Here's a photo of damaged plating where the shell rivets can be seen.


Regards,
Ralph
