Following the sad loss of John Day in the summer of 2006, his son Crispin and partner Caroline endeavoured to carry on the John Day Models business in an attempt to continue supplying this wonderful range of models which span a diverse range of decades and subject matter. Equally as important, Crispin realised that it would be a very sad loss for modellers around the world if the model range which is his father’s legacy were to slip away. Unfortunately, as Crispin and Caroline are both professionals with young children and already live very busy lives, they realised that to carry on with the models was all too consuming. With a view of continuing the range of models and his father’s name, Crispin passed the business over to me, Daryle Toney in August 2010, knowing that I had a passion for these models and would ensure his father’s name and work would continue.
The range has been slowly reintroduced from existing serviceable moulds in small quantities, and new moulds of remastered and brand new models have now begun in earnest subject to available time as this is a small cottage industry run alongside my main business.
Modellers can look forward to a comprehensive range of GPO Vehicles complete with decals, more railway owned vehicles and figure scenes to compliment this ever growing range.
