This model is the Dinky 670-G-1 Daimler Armoured Car in Dull Olive. This particular model came with an old part box.

The model features no opening parts as is common for the period and all features are cast into the body casting. At the front the lights are cast into the body, two side lights mounted on the mudguards and a single covered headlight on the right hand side of the body. To the right of this headlight is a military insignia/flag. The cab area is quite detailed and shows the driver's viewing hatch covers, the side doors, tool/ammunition boxes and other detail, including the main roof hatch. The rear body consists of the engine hatches and rear radiator grille. Either side of the radiator are two tiny rear lights and another insignia on the right hand rear mudguard. The model has no glazing.

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

The baseplate is black metal and is marked "Made in England" on two lines across the front, parallel to the front axle, Dinky Toys at the top centre, "Armoured Car" in the middle centre, "Meccano Ltd" at the bottom centre and, at right angles next to the rear axle, "670".
