The model - Citybus issued their DMS/Lodekka set in Hong Kong during July 2000. It features the Lodekka model already issued (Model No. 13912), and a variation of the recently released DMS model, which has chinese registration and adverts for their cross border service (the National Express style ones). The vehicle's identity is also different.

To add even more value to the set, there is illustrated colour fleetlist correct at 31st December 1986, a Citybus pen, a fridge magnet, and a key ring with the Daimler scroll etched on one side and the Citybus fleetname on the other. The set is being handled by Citybus, and is not available through the EFE collectors club, however it is available in the UK through Digby's Miniature Automobiles.

The bus - D41 was new to London Transport in 1976 as DMS2130 (OJD 130R). It was acquired by Citybus in 1984 and in 1991 sold to Guangzhou No.1 Bus Company, where it was allocated fleet no. 1358.
