Dinky 161b Anti Aircraft Gun

The Dinky Anti Aircraft Gun. Renumbered in 1954. The base of the pre-war anti aircraft gun trailer was not solid but had a circular hole with a stretcher bar that had a hole in the centre. This was a weakness of the pre-war design. The post war version had a solid floor. The pre-war barrel mount had holes in the mount seats for fitting the die cast gunners. There must have been stocks of the gun barrel mount left over from pre-war days as there are models with early barrel mounts fitted to post war trailers. Later trailers had barrel mounts without holes in the seats. Post war Dinky Toys had a 2mm axle but the pre-war version had a slightly smaller diameter axle and can be a source of problems when refurbishing an early Dinky.

As the gun was a combination of the outline of a the British Army`s Bofors gun and a Binns Road designer`s concept, the model has no exact scale but is something like a 1:60th to 1:64th scale model. The lorry that pulled the gun however falls into the scale category of Fits the box as it is actually nearer to 1:62 scale. Other Military Dinkys ranged from 1:32nd scale right down to 1:64th scale. Some but not all of the Dinky Supertoys were nearer to 1:55th and 1:48th scales. Children in the 1950s and 60s didn`t care about scales so we find a mixture of scales in the Dinky military range. available in olive drab finish at 1:60 scale. Dinky 161b in detail...
