Today I received a new book for my collection

Glasgow Museums
The Ship Models
A History and complete illustrated Catalogue
by EMILY MALCOLM (has been curator of Glasgow Museums' Ship Model collection since 2003. She has a wide-ranging interest in maritime collections in museums and a particular enthusiasm for ship models and modelmaking)

Publisher: Naval Institute Press

IMG_5459.JPG

Synopsis:

This publication will be the first full catalog 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 have a description and color 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.
A stunning collection of photographs complements 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 of the whole history of the ship.


I will post a Book Review in some time .....

Going a bit ahead of this book review. I found it is an excellent source for the first-time scratch builder! The books covers three methods of scratch builds. At 1:48 scale, alternatively, the model-maker may choose to build a POB (Plank On Bulkhead), Solid lift version or POF (Plank on Frame). Supplied plans cover all three methods material e.g. bulkheads, frames in scale 1:48. Book dedicated chapters for each method and there are combined chapters in comonot for all three methods. Wow!! :)

The book most used in my libary is my Paasch dictionary. I think every day i use this book. Until now i had only the small reduced conway edition. I bought now the reprint from 1978 from the original edition from 1885. The difference in content and size is immense.
