Parker Model Vehicles
« on: November 14, 2012, 10:03:41 pm »
The latest edition of N'spirations includes an article on 'British road vehicles' This included some details of Parker  kits for Cars, Lorries and Vans but no info on where to obtain them.
I have done a search on Internet but cannot find any positive dedtails.
Can anybody help please ? Any details would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance. JohnK

A search on Parker shows previous threads discussing his models.

Don't think he has a website. I suggest you check out his advert in Railway Modeller.
I recently made one of his Ford Transit vans - very simple two piece (whitemetal castings) kit plus glazing, so the end product comes down to your skill at painting! Unfortunately, most of the N gauge kits are too old for my period.

To get a copy of his catalogue you should send an SAE to:
R. Parker,
19, Oaklands,
Malvern Wells,
Worcs. WR14 4JE.

His vehicles are very easy to put together and are miles better than the lumps of white metal offered by Langley etc.

Just this week I received a couple of examples of the wartime National Fire Service Fordson 7V Heavy Pump. Delightful kit which just falls together. I have plans to do one as NFS and the other as a post war Kent version. Need a dry day to give them an initial coat of primer.

Thanks to all who responded to my request for information . I have acted on your recommendations and have already ordered a couple of Kits. If I can get a result similar to some of the pics I will be more than satisfied.
Again many thanks for all your help. Regards. JohnK :thankyousign:

They're quite easy to paint; clean up any flash (although they're pretty clean to start), then wash and give an undercoat of Halford grey primer from an aerosol. When that is dry give a coating of the main colour again from an aerosol (or air brush) - car colours are good. When dry pick out any features with contrast colours; black, silver etc. using a fine brush (and steady hand). Paint the body and chassis separately - generally the chassis just needs a black finish and the wheel hubs (and bumpers if included) picked out in silver. Then when thoroughly dry give a coat of matt varnish and assemble;

I have just ordered some RParker kits and received an updated price list which shows 2 new kits.
These both look very nice, useful and I shall be ordering them this week.
