This model is the Dyna-Mo R.98 1911 Maxwell in red.

The model is a one-piece body molded with representations of the cab and chassis, headlights, wheel arches, and running boards. There is no separate interior or glazing, although the front seats are cast into the body.

There is no baseplate.

All wheels are silver metal with molded representations of 10 spoke hubs and tyres.

The model comes in a plain brown cardboard box. On the face of the box is printed the Dyna-Models logo to the left centre, " "Dyna-Mo" " to the upper right and "Dyna-Model Products Company, 75 South Street, Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York" on two lines at the centre bottom. The left end flap has "R.98" to the top left, "HO" to the top right, "1911 Maxwell" in the middle centre, and "55c" at the centre bottom. All text is in red lettering. All other sides are plain. I have assumed from the end flap the original price of the model was $0.55.

This model was issued circa the 1940s or 1950s.
