|The model -
this model was issued in Hong Kong in November 1998. Quantities
(1,400) of this model were subsequently offered as a 'Special Subscriber
Christmas Offer' by EFE in October/November 1998, along with China Motor
Bus Leyland Atlantean (18105).
- The real D4 was one of six Daimler Fleetline CRG6s new to Bournemouth
Corporation Transport in 1965. It carried fleet number 191 and was registered
CRU 191C. Citybus purchased these vehicles second hand in 1979. The
bodywork is Weymann, but with Alexander front panels. The model accurately
represents the front but the rear roof line is more curved than the prototype.
The real D4 first appeared in a simple colour scheme but was repainted
into the depicted colour scheme in 1981. It remained in this condition
until 1984 when it was converted into an open-top vehicle.
