Pete Jaquith Posted April 21, 2014 Share #1 Posted April 21, 2014 Ship Modelers, I am considering a plate on solid hull scratch build of the steam salvage tug "Foundation Franklin" 1918. Has anyone had experience in using Bristol board to simulate lapped riveted iron/steel hull plating? I have seen Bristol board used for plating on deckhouse structure and it was very effective. The material used was textured Bristol board ~.012" in thickness. I have used Bristol board on other models and it takes paint well. "Foundation Franklin" was a steam salvage tug working the North Atlantic out of Maritime Canada in the 1930's and 1940's. She became well known to lovers of the battle between men and the sea through Farley Mowat's book "Grey Seas Under". If you have not read the book, it's a great read about tugs and their men.
