This model is the Dinky 38b/101 Sunbeam Talbot in Yellow with yellow hubs and dark green tonneau.

The model features no opening parts, all features are cast into the body casting. At the front we have the headlights and grille picked out in silver, small cast sidelights and body trim, small radiator cap/hood ornament, and cast lines representing the bonnet hinge. To the sides the running boards are cast but the doors are not. At the rear there is a cast spare wheel cover over the boot. The interior is painted yellow and has a black metal steering wheel on a plain dashboard, cast front seat, and tonneau with cast fold lines and studs. There are no front or rear bumpers. The glazing on this model is a simple clear plastic unit that passes into a slot behind the bonnet area.

All wheels are of the shaped cast metal type - solid one piece cast metal hubs, painted yellow, with a separate black "rubber" tyre.

The base plate of this model is unpainted tinplate with small lettering that reads Dinky Toys at the top centre, "Sunbeam-Talbot" in the middle centre and "Meccano Ltd Made in England" at the bottom centre. It is held in place by two machined rivets.

This casting was used between 1940 and 1955.
