This model is the Dinky 283-G-1 BOAC Coach in Silver with light blue hubs. This is a Code 3 restoration.

There are no opening parts on this model and all features are cast into the body casting. The model has a cast grille, headlights and bumper at the front and body trim lines on all four sides done in silver. There is no glazing.

The baseplate is in black metal marked with "Dinky Toys" at the centre top,  "Made in England" to the middle centre, and "Meccano Ltd" at the bottom centre. It is held in place by two machined rivets.

All wheels are light blue, cast metal hubs with black rubber tyres and rounded axles.

This model was originally issued between 1956 and 1963. I do not know when this restoration was done.
