This publication will be the first full catalogue of Glasgow Museums’ internationally important collection of ship models.

Almost all of the 676 models, which range from elegant cruise liners to humble Clyde puffers, and from simple half-hull design models to magnificent display models, were produced by Clyde shipyards or Glasgow-based ship owners. It is the representation of models from such a distinct geographical area, together with the quality of the models, which makes this collection so exceptional. As well as general chapters about the collection, each of the 676 models has a description and colour photograph.

Some of the most famous ships launched on the Clyde are represented, such as RMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Hood, as well models of historically significant vessels such as the first European passenger steamer Comet and the world’s first commercial turbine-powered vessel King Edward. The ship models form one of Glasgow Museums most popular and most viewed collections, and enquiries about them come in from all over the world.

A stunning collection of photographs will complement newly researched and in-depth chapters. The book will give readers worldwide a chance to see images of the models, a sense of the breadth and importance of the collection and a deepened understanding about the whole history of the ship.
