Highly Engineered Products for the Discerning Modeller
Welcome to the David J. Parkins web site!
Our company manufactures kits and detail sets to the highest of standards, using photo-etched brass, photo-etched nickel silver, cast metal, resin and cast brass.
Across our four ranges you will find details of kits, detail sets and accessories that will help you in building the most detailed of models.
We have been producing kits and parts since 1976, firstly in the sphere of model railways, but, since 1990, also in the areas of model aircraft, figures, military vehicles and ships. Within our company we have four ranges of products.
LMS 30 Ton 45' Bogie Bolster Wagon - D.6468 This kit covers the 327 wagons built to this diagram [fore-runner of the BR Bogie Bogie Bolster 'C']. There were many more of these wagons built to other diagram numbers that were virtually indentical, all with the compound brake gear, which is fully represented in this kit. Full underframe detail is featured together with super-detailed sprung LMS-pattern diamond-frame bogies. More.....
BR 16 Ton Steel Mineral Wagon - Diag. 1/109 This kit represents the BR 'Coal 16' built in smaller numbers than the Diag. 1/108 version [though still numerous!] and introduced from 1950. These wagons were characterised by rivetted body-work & side doors and were fitted with pressed end doors. Like the 1/108 vehicles they had no bottom discharge doors and were almost all fitted with two shoe Morton brake gear as standard. More.....

A range of kits, detail sets, weapons sets, ground support equipment, buildings and diorama accessories for the scale aircraft modeller in 1/72nd, 1/48th, 1/32nd and 1/24th scales, with particular accent on RAF and USAF/US Navy subjects. Flightpath includes the 'Gunsmoke' range of highly-detailed 1/32nd scale modern USAF/US Navy detail and weapons sets.

PLEASE NOTE - Our kits are NOT for beginners - many have large numbers of small detailed parts and require a background of modelling experience.
