This model is the Editions Atlas Dinky 506-F-1 Aston Martin DB3 Sport in mid green with Racing Number "16", white driver and spun hubs. The Atlas issued box carries no coloured dot on the end flap.

There are no opening parts on this model, all detail such as the bonnet, grille and lights, petrol cap and rear louvres being cast into the body casting. The vehicle is adorned with silver painted grille and headlight lenses to the front, and red tail lights to the rear. The car has "16" racing numbers (black on white roundel) to the front of the bonnet and on both sides.

There is no interior as such as the seats appear to be part of the body casting. The seats are mid green and there is a cream steering wheel set into the "dashboard". The driver is white and there is no glazing.

All wheels are one piece, spun metal hubs with separate black rubber tyres on domed steel axles which pass through the base plate.

The base plate is black painted tinplate metal that carries the legend " Dinky Toys" to the centre top, "Aston Martin, Editions Atlas © Mattel" on two lines in the centre middle, and "Made in China" at the centre bottom. It is held in place by two machined rivets at the front and rear.

Exact issue date is unknown but thought to be circa 2015/2016.
