 PRO1 Proctor Diesel light 7 ton 1947 cab
Proctor Springwood Ltd were originally transport contractors and engineers. According to the Commercial Motor road test dated 15 August 1947 ‘the company designed the chassis to meet the requirements of the practical operator and critical driver’. The three page test is headed ‘A Vehicle for Fast Trunk Haulage’. Powered with a Perkins P6 diesel and Moss five speed gearbox the unladen weight scaled at 2 tons 18 cwt, well under the magic 3 tons that would have restricted it to the 20mph maximum applicable until 1953. The report also notes that an 1800 cu.ft. aluminium body was under construction, that would also allow a legal speed of 30 mph. The road test by L J Cotton, laden to 8.5 tons speaks of agile performance, light steering and handling and adequate braking. A number were registered in my local area and highly regarded.

Our first limited edition some years back was all resin, but this reissued model with wider front wings and improved windows also has nickel etched finely detailed radiator, headlamp bezels and front quarter bumpers, mirroring the chromed parts on the prototype, which were really striking especially on a lorry in the austere late forties. Produced originally at Mousehold, Norwich until 1950, production then moved to one of their sale distributors Praill’s of Hereford where a number were operated in the surrounding counties.

Transport modellers!

Welcome to Road Transport Images.

We produce the largest range available of British Commercial vehicles in 4mm/1:76th scale models from a 1932 Bedford WG up to a 2007 DAF CF, with over 120 cabs introduced since 2003 plus various chassis', bodies and accessories to model the complete vehicle of your choice.

We issue a new price list with new products every 3 months in January, April, July and October, and with each new list we offer a special kit deal that provides a considerable overall saving as opposed to buying the individual modules. This saving is usually between £6-£8 and is a good way of introducing yourself to our product range.

Our large and diverse range of 4mm / OO  / 1:76 scale model trucks uses a modular building system which makes assembly as simple as possible, requiring a minimum number of components. All of the cabs consist of two parts: complete cab shell and interior, plus steering wheel and appropriate style fuel tank for the cab type. Chassis are also two parts: chassis rails and rear mudguards, plus underside transmission, including axle beams and dif. to hold the axles in place. A range of white metal wheels is available to suit all cab types.

The range currently includes over 60 cabs from 1932 onwards, 10 chassis to suit all applications, a diverse range of bodies, trailers and unsheeted loads, as well as 23 wheel profiles and a selection of accessories. We have 11 modelling information sheets to help transport modellers add further fine detailing, much of which is included in the illustrations provided and which transforms a model into an authentic replica of the real thing. Our latest addition is display models for sale.

For more information and greater details about the range, it really is better for us to send you hard copy for you to read at your leisure. Please send a DL or A5 size SAE to: 17 Foxdene Road, Seasalter, Whitstable, Kent CT5 4QY.
