I have designated this model as the Dinky 27m-G-1b Land Rover Trailer in Orange with Cream hubs (issue 1 is listed as an orange trailer with red hubs and #341 was issued with red metal or plastic hubs).

At the front is the drawbar with tin plate sprung clip fitted to the underside. The body is cast in one piece to include the drawbar, axle mounts and wheel wells. The rear of the trailer carries a white "T" on black background decal.

All wheels consist of grey rubber tyres on cream ridged cast metal hubs. There is no spare wheel on the underside but a tinplate tow hook is attached to the rear of the trailer body.

There is no separate baseplate on this model — all information is molded onto the model itself. It has Dinky Toys in the centre top and "MECCANO LTD" in the centre bottom. To the middle rear is cast "MADE IN ENGLAND", just in front of the tinplate tow hook.

This item was issued in 1953.
