The August 2018 Railway Modeller has an advert for new R. Parker vehicles, 3 in 00 and one in N. The N introduction looks like it is a rework of NG37 pictured in the post above.

NG39  1920 AEC 3.5 ton lorry, which is just suitable for late pre-Grouping layouts and later.

Possibly also of use for WW1 models, given that the WW1 range was continued post war as the Y-type I believe.

Re: Parker Model Vehicles new Morris J van
« Reply #16 on: September 13, 2018, 07:10:11 PM »
The October Railway Modeller carries an advertisement with a new model:-

NG40  1949-1960 Morris J-type van

This was a long lived van type much loved by Royal Mail and Post Office Telephones. 1/76 versions exist in the Oxford Diecast and Pocketbond ranges.


Seems to be an ideal vehicle for the station forecourt in BR steam days.

The RAF had a lot of J2s, horrible vehicle to drive, the column change was a disaster, almost impossible to find first or second, there was so much play in the linkages, (possibly poor maintenance?) I once drove one form near Kings Lynn to Bedford and back and only used 3rd and 4th, clutches didn't last long as a result. The J4 had a floor change but the same gear box was used and the gear lever positions were reversed from that used on  other vehicles, first was down right as against the normal up left.

The Parker model represents the version which preceded the J2 and j4. The original J type was no picnic either. My first experience was as a temporary Royal Mail postman in Christmas 1964 delivering to villages around my home town. I did all the deliveries whilst my driver stayed cosy in the cab which contained the engine and gave off a lot of heat!. The sliding doors were alternately almost impossible to slide shut to keep the heat in when stationary but on uphills would slide open of their own accord as the body flexed. The bonus of the job was that as a naive 16 year old I was introduced to seeing one particular young lady householder whose nightwear was at the very skimpy end of the scale. She had a parcel delivery every day, and my driver was keen to tell me that he was making a big sacrifice by letting me deliver her parcels! It did not matter what time I delivered, she was always in her nightwear. :-)

If I am correct Langley have done this or a similar vehicle for a long time. I do like the Parker cars and have several from the 1950s.

This is the J type being modelled by R. Parker.

The Langley kit E18 is for a different older-design and larger Morris van called the PV.

Mr Parker produces wonderful kits, covering a wide range of types not available elsewhere. However it is frustrating buying from the antipodes - not even a phone number. Everything by mail, and only cheques or PO for payment. In my last exchange, which was two years ago, he said just add £5.70 to any order for airmail to Australia. It may be a little more now.
