Just arrived today....a new model, and one I have been wanting for some time, the Tri-Porteur, #14. Some quick checking showed that this was introduced in 1935, discontinued during the war, then re-introduced right after the war, and made through 1952 before being discontinued. It was made in a variety of colores, both pre and post war. Earlier models has white Dunlop tires, and starting around 1950 they came with the familiar black "m" tires, which mine has. The Dinky Toys Encyclopedia says the scale is 1:40, meaning this is quite a bit larger than the automobiles produced at the same time. A common problem with this model is the hinged lid coming detached from the box beneath it. It is held in place by only two, tiny pins, each protruding into the side of the box. The pins appear to be no more than about 1/3 the diameter of an axle, so they can break or dislodge very easily. I can imagine only light playing with this model would result in the lid disappearing! The French factory did a nice job in painting this, as the drivers pants and shoes are painted a contrasting color to his blouse or shirt. Hands and face are flesh painted, with some rudimentary effort made to highlight cheeks and lips on the driver. All in all, a delightful little model, from a bygone era, but so typical of Dinky to make a model of it.
