Bishop’s Move Edinburgh moves model ships to Dundee’s McManus Gallery

Jul 02, 2017

Bishop’s Move Edinburgh has once again been contracted by Dundee’s McManus Gallery to reinstate its collection of historic model ships from their temporary home in Camper Down House where they were kept during the gallery’s extensive restoration.

The model ship collection comprises over 20 models, all built by local shipbuilders, each with their own story to tell. This is the third occasion on which the Edinburgh branch has undertaken moves of this nature for the gallery.

The model ships were moved from the gallery’s collection unit into The McManus Gallery & Museum, a distance of roughly 300 metres. At the gallery’s request - due to the size of the models and the short distance involved - the ships were not required to be crated or export wrapped, although some of the more fragile models were protected using a combination of cloth blankets and specialist ‘furniguard’ wrap material.

David Mills, Bishop’s Move’s Scotland General Manager said, “The branch is delighted to be supporting the McManus Galleries with the relocation of the models for a third occasion. We greatly enjoy moving them as they are unique and something very different from the day-to-day relocations normally undertaken.”
