There are no opening parts on this model but it comes with forks that raise and lower via the use of a winder mechanism.

A home built pallet and load accompanies the model.

There is no interior as everything is open. Likewise there is no glazing.

All three wheels are of the shaped hub type - solid one piece, green painted metal hubs with a black "rubber" tyre.

The box pictured is a reproduction box in orange that even carries a 10/- (ten shillings) price in pencil.
