Come on down to The Tall Ship and see one of our latest exhibitions, "Wingrove: A World of Miniatures". Gerald Wingrove was one of the best known model-makers in the world. This exhibition showcases his remarkable talent. We focus on how he created an incredible model of the Falls of Clyde, one of the other 5 Clydebuilt ships still afloat, comparing this to how our beloved ship was built. #thetallship #glasgow #exhibition #thingstodoinglasgow #modelmaking
