4th National Warship Weekend

It’s that time again when one of the largest armadas in the model world descend upon the waters of Queens Park.  Yes that’s right its another National Warship Weekend, the 4th consecutive event to be hosted by Glasgow South Ship Modellers Society.  This prestigious event has grown year on year and now represents one of the largest outdoor model boating events held in Scotland.  This year we intend to build upon the success of previous years with an even greater display both on and off the water, extensive prizes  including a 1/72 scale Corvette,   2.4ghz radio set and much much more.   If that’s not enough we have also introduced a micro cinema where you can see some classic film while you enjoy some great hospitality and a wee cup of tea.

GSSMS on Day two of National Warship Weekend during set up

Queens Park is located on the South side of Glasgow with the clubhouse and pond clearly visible from Pollokshaws Road. Entrance to the show can also be gained from Pollokshaws Road either through the entrance at Queens Square or via the entrance at GOALS.  GOALS have kindly made their facilities available to us and here you can enjoy comfortable toilet facilities and if the need arises a nice cold pint at the Bar.  There is ample parking around the Park in the surrounding streets.  Parking with in the park is limited to exhibitors and disabled parking although this may be dependent upon the prevailing weather conditions and the firmness of the ground on the verge next to the pond.  For anyone traveling long distances you will be glad to know that Glasgow is awash with relatively cheap good quality accommodation. Accommodation can be sourced from as little as £12 per night per person (based on 3 sharing). Etap hotel Springfield Quay, Glasgow is little more than 2.5 miles from Queens Park and less than 0.5 miles from the Glasgow City Centre.  Alternatively you can locate and book through Booking.com.
