This model is the Morestone Aveling Barford Road Roller in red with green roller sides.

This model has no opening parts, all detail is cast into the model apart from the driver figure (missing from this example). The front roller housing rotates which allows the model to be "steered". Apart from that this is a very basic casting, typical of the time.

All rollers are of the "cast" type - hollow, one piece metal with two castings being fitted together to form the front steering roller.

There is no base plate as the item is formed from two "half body" castings which carry no indication of manufacturer on the exterior surfaces.

This model was issued between 1955 and 1956. The casting later became the basis for the Budgie 701 Aveling Barford.
