The model - details of the release of this model were announced in early August and it was released, along with a second version (180109), on 14th August 2015. Neither carry KMB fleetnames and it is therefore assumed these are not licensed products. KMB decals are provided.

The bus - Kowloon Motor Bus received a total of 450 Daimler/Leyland Fleetlines between 1974 and 1979, all being 33 feet long. Bodywork was spread between Metal Sections (MetSec), Brititish Aluminium Company (BACo) and a few with KMB's own bodywork.
