MENG’S MOST LIKE Final Judges The Chief Judge Mr. David Parker



Bright eyes, a smiling face and the unique beard are the first impression we get from Mr. David Parker.


Two years ago, we had the honor to invite David to be one of the judges of the First MENG Model Contest. His inexhaustible enthusiasm of hobby modeling, his treasuring the contest entries and his focus during the site judging process left everyone there a deep impression. Now, MENG has the honor to invite David to be Chief Judge of this MENG’s MOST LIKED final contest.



Born in Newbury UK in 1963, David started his life-long modeling experience when he was 6. After graduating with a degree in Fine Art David began a career in the advertising industry as a graphic designer before setting up and becoming Creative Director of his own advertising agency. David began writing articles for Military Modelling magazine at the age of 23.



He founded AFV Modeller (currently Meng AFV Modeller) magazine in 2001, followed by AIR Modeller (currently Meng AIR Modeller) in 2005. As Editor of both magazines he splits his time between building tanks and aircraft although tanks remain the real passion for him.



He is probably best known for his three and a half year project super detailing a 1/16 King Tiger which was finished in 2012. In 2014, he brought together all the materials and published the super detailed SUPER KING. He also spent two years detailing a 1/32 B-17 Flying Fortress project.




Working closely with MENG, David is pleased that he can build a large number of latest MENG new releases to feature in the magazines. For David, building models are more than a hobby and it’s a part of his life. We look forward to seeing more exciting models built by David.
