  1. Glasgow Museums: The Ship Models (Hardback) - Seaforth Publishing Company: Seaforth Publishing; Illustrated edition (5 Nov. 2019) Author: Emily Malcolm Kit No: ISBN-10: 1526752263, ISBN-13: 978-1526752260 Pages: 374 ISBN: 978152675752 Retail Price: £ 35.- Available here: https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Glasgow-Museums-The-Ship-Models-Hardback/p/16736 About This publication is 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. Great crisp detail shots in highest quality. Chaper Notes Conclusion Wow... What an incredible book! It is full of richly coloured beautifully crisp photographs of stunning models with great detail shots as well. It catalogues the entire collection of the Glasgow Museums Ship Models for the first time. The ship models in the collection cover an impressive range: from models depicting the "age of sail", including some amazing bone ships crafted by prisoners of the Napoleonic Wars, through all manner of vessels up to modern times. If you love ship models this is a must have! My sincere thanks go to Pen and Sword for sending this book for review here on Model Ship World. To buy, ask your favorite dealer.
  2. Imagine being paid to pursue your hobby of model ship building in a famous museum holding hundreds of projects waiting to be worked on. Well, for over 20 years Ab Hoving had that pleasure at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam where he was the head ship model builder and restorer. Ab and his team worked on exhibits in what is now the fully restored Navy Model Room of this great Museum. For those of you who do not know him, Ab is one of the foremost ship historians and model restorers of our time. His books and articles have illuminated our knowledge of seventeenth century ship building and his modeling skills speak for themselves. In this book Ab has selected 54 subjects out of the hundreds in the Museum collection to tell about in words and pictures. Not only will you see a wide scope of subjects displayed in color but you will get AB's research on the stories and histories behind each one. This book has been translated by Paul Fontenoy, editor of the Nautical Research Journal, from the Dutch version that was published last year. The English version has been faithfully rreproduced in the US using Ab's son Emiel's lay out and design. what a joyous and and beautiful way to close out a career.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
