New car kits from R Parker in 4mm and 2mm

Recommended Posts

Just got these flyers in the post today from R Parker. Good to see some new 'old' stuff in 4mm scale at last as OD have got a bit too modern for the poor postwar people who inhabit my layouts!post-14054-0-48839900-1461758034_thumb.jpgpost-14054-0-00454300-1461758084_thumb.jpg

Hi Clive,

 

Are these kits still available from R.Parker? I am looking for some 1930s N scale vehicles - I already have a few from the Oxford diecast range, but lorries are proving to be a bit elusive. Another Forum member sent me details about R. Parker N scale vehicles from a different post, but when I do a search online there was only one stockist mentioned, which has now closed?

Hi Marlyn - you have to order direct from RParker - he advertises monthly in the back pages of Railway Modeller

I can see why he stock cleared the first models as they were duplicated by Oxford diecast.

 

Dont have an RM to hand but does anyone have the address for R Parker so I can mail him for a price list please? Very old school!

Thanks for that. Every one of those 00 kits is available RTR sadly so no point paying twice as much.

 

Does anybody have have a list of what he’s made over the years as there would suggest over seventy looking at his numbering system?

Actually VE09 1957 Vauxhall Cresta PA is an earlier version (with the three-piece rear screen) than the Oxford diecast version (1957-9 against 1961-2). His Lotus Cortina is also a better shape, particularly along the waist, belt line and rainstrip/window area.

Thanks for the list and the notes. I actually have the P5B on my layout. And I remember the model shop in Leamington Spa having a few in about ten years ago.

Anyone have any pics of R Parker’s kits theyve built up? Just curious as I like model vehicles as much as railways :)

There is a message on another board on RMWeb to say that most of the R Parker 00 range has been taken over by John Day Models (Daryle Tonye) and will be absorbed into the John Day range gradually.
