The model - following the release of the two 1:24 scale Best Choose China Motor Bus DMSs, it seemed only a matter of time before a version appeared in another Hong Kong bus operator's livery. Sure enough, this Citybus model was announced on the 4th April 2006, and it is due for release in Hong Kong on 14th April 2006. Although based on the same casting as used by Best Choose, this version is being released as an 80M Bus Model product. It includes the same features found on the other 1:24 DMS. D20 was also modelled in 1:76 scale by EFE in 2000 (25709).

The bus - D20 was one of the second batch of five former London Transport to enter service with Citybus. Unlike the first batch of five DMS's, it retained it's centre exit doors. It entered service in July 1981 and was numbered L20 (denoting a Leyland engine), becaming D20 in September 1981, after receiving a standard Gardner engine. It was withdrown in 1991. 

Of particular note is that the destination equipment was not used on this batch, with just a fixed Citybus display in situ.
