A fascinating insight into museums’ model ship collection

On the back of the success of Glasgow Museums’ ship model collection, they have created this extraordinary coffee table book.

Taking a decade to compile, it covers all 676 ship models produced by Clyde shipyards and Glasgow-based ship owners.

Ranging from the majestic RMS Queen Mary and famous Royal Navy battleship HMS Hood to the humble Clyde puff er, this showcases the ships’ beauty inside and out, shining a light on the international importance of the city’s shipbuilding industry.

A visual delight and beautiful homage to Glasgow’s almighty contribution to the industrial age.

The Ship Models: A History and Complete Illustrated Catalogue, by Emily Malcolm and Michael R Harrison, published by Seaforth Publishing, £35.
