I've posted my order along with my cheque this morning.

It rook me a while to find the book, quill and ink but I did remember how to complete the document. The previous tab/stub had a date of February 2018. That covered a posted order to Mr Heard in Douglas.

Hope my order gets shipped promptly - once the cheque has cleared of course.

It has been reported by Daryl Tonye of John Day Models that he has taken over the 00 gauge/1:76 range of models formerly produced by R. Parker. Has anyone recently ordered N models from Mr.Parker? The future position of the N models is hopefully assured somehow.

That's great news. The R Parker N gauge kits are my favourites for the pre 50s era stuff.

Good to know the range is continuing, and possibly expanding.
I have around 12 of his 40s/50s cars and they fit in with my modelled era really well.  It's a shame they are not available a tad easier.

They were once, for a while, I really do like this range and am glad it is carrying on.

Firstly, it is good that the N gauge kits are going to continue to be produced.

I would suggest that the lack of an online sales and marketing presence will still be an issue with regard to the N gauge models, as this almost an essential requirement now. Relying on a magazine advert and customers requesting a product list is unlikely to be sustainable and may lead to lack of orders ending these kits being produced.

Thinks may change one day you know, the important thing is they continue for now who knows what the future holds.

lets hope N models  continue in production , how is scale compared with say Oxford ?
I notice the 00/1.76 scale 1960's Reliant Regal is bigger than the Oxford offering , (maybe Parker is 1.72nd ?)
