The model - News of this 'Hongkong Post' gift set, which contains three Euro V engined Enviro500s, was announced in July 2013. 

The following is an extract from their press release dated 7th July 2013 :-

"Having a long history, Hong Kong buses have been providing convenient and reliable services to citizens in Hong Kong since the 1920s. The popular transportation keeps pace with times and evolves in terms of appearance, carrying capacity, comfort level as well as environmental friendliness all these years. Nowadays, buses have become one of the indispensable means of transport for Hong Kong people. 


Hongkong Post is pleased to present a “Hong Kong Buses Stamp Sheetlets with Bus Models Prestige Gift Set” which comes with a $5 stamp sheetlet, a $20 stamp sheetlet and a set of three 1:76 Enviro 500 Euro V bus models. In the $20 stamp sheetlet, lenticular printing effect is applied to the stamp. Three Euro V buses set against the background of Victoria Harbour in day, at twilight and at night respectively are imprinted on the stamp to symbolise Hong Kong Buses serving the public round the clock. The routes of the 1:76 Enviro 500 Euro V bus models (Citybus: Route 619, KMB: Route 47X and NWFB: Route 18P) are first ever launched in Hong Kong, making the set a precious collectible that cannot be missed.

The order deadline for this stamp product is 24 July 2013."

released on 25th September 2013. The two other models in the set are Citybus 8128 (80819) and Kowloon Motor Bus ATEE5 (39421).
