The latest model in the Atlas Dinky trucks series is very considerably smaller than the first three. The Austin covered truck was produced by the simple expedient of taking the Austin Wagon 30j and adding a tin tilt to create 30s. #413 was created when Dinky renumbered the range in 1954. A military variant of this model existed in green and was only sold in North America.
Atlas have chosen to model this vehicle in light blue with yellow wheels and tilt which is one of the colour options produced by Dinky. This looks jaunty but most would have been painted in dark colours in real life.
