Road Transport Images was developed by Frank Waller from Seasalter in Kent as an extension of a hobby he started in the late nineties, purely for nostalgic reasons, to recreate lorries he had driven and / or operated, or ones he could recall from the "good old days". Frank retired in 2002 after a lifetime in transport and distribution, starting as a driver's mate and driver, retiring as a national operations manager.
Frank passed away in 2018 and the business subsequently passed to its current owners; Graeme and Lorraine McQuaker who are based in Ayrshire in West Central Scotland.
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. An increasing range of bodywork is available, plus a selection of loads to replicate a lorry "earning it's keep".
All cabs and components can be built as a complete vehicle, or you can just buy individual items, such as cabs, bodies, wheels etc. to convert or improve EFE, Trackside and other kits you may have bought previously. An increasing range of water slide transfers and registration numbers (with an option to have fifty sets made to your own requirements) are also available for super detailing. The objective is to take the masochism out of modelling.
Half a dozen components and you have a rolling chassis/cab. We have made the price list as easy to follow as possible. First listed is the range of cabs with cab prices. The next column to the right indicates the chassis(s) that will fit each particular cab; the third column is the wheel set to suit the vehicle type. The prices for chassis and wheels are priced under the appropriate headings.
Bodywork is also available, mostly one piece, ready for painting. Against each body type is shown the price and the chassis it will fit. All images give the cab code for easy recognition, with many showing chassis, body and wheel codes.
We attend a number of model and transport exhibitions throughout the year, with advance notice being published on the website and sent to customers on the email list. Our show stand has examples of all current items on display with stock available for sale and numerous fully assembled and painted models on display.
We'd be pleased to meet you to explain our range further. We hope this has further fired your interest and look forward to receiving your orders.
