The latest item sent in the Atlas Dinky Trucks series is a classic Supertoy presented in a nice box which retains the style of the original but makes it clear that this is a replica licensed by Mattel. This model was in production between 1954 and 1957 and succeeded the similar 501 which had an earlier Foden cab style.

The Atlas replica is nicely made and has the solidity and simplicity of the original toy. Its size making it a very impressive model indeed.

As the photograph shows the printed grille work on the front of the cab has been neatly done as has the ridges bumper.

At the rear there is little detail other than the tow hook and spare wheel which is correct.

Again this series continues to deliver what was promised unlike the Atlas Dinky Toys collection where the latest package was sealed correctly but with no model included at all!
