The Hawthorn Lelie Mould Loft at their Hebburn-on-Tyne shipyard. Highly skilled men took the small scale hull form plans produced in the Drawing Office and reproduced them in chalk at full size on the floor. They corrected the inevitable distortions in the scale drawings and produced templates for the steelworkers to start construction.
