    This model is the Dinky 404-G-4a Climax Conveyancer Forklift in all over dark yellow. This model has the word Conveyancer in black over yellow background on the left hand side lower body and on both sides of the Lift rails. It also has the lettering "TC4" in black on a yellow background, behind the driver on the body.

    It has a working lift mechanism controlled by the right hand side winder which raises and lowers the forks via a string. The model comes with a black plastic pallet (marked as item 793), driver's seat, exhaust stack, lift top and winder arm instead of the brown plastic components identified in the references, so I have added "a" to the model's coding.

    The driver, in blue overalls, sits on a black plastic seat and is posed to appear to be holding a black plastic steering wheel that is connected via an orange casting to the rear wheels which are, therefore, "steerable". The rollbar safety frame is yellow plastic.

    All wheels have yellow plastic hubs with a black "rubber" tyre.

    The base plate is dark yellow painted metal and is marked with Dinky Toys in the top centre, "Conveyancer" on the second line, "Meccano Limited" on the third line and "Made in England" at the bottom centre. It is held in place with a single self tapping screw.

    This model was issued between 1967 and 1979.
