Citybus

The model - released in Hong Kong on 4th September 2002 was this fictitious Citybus liveried Dennis Dragon, commissioned, like previous fictitious Citybus models, by China Paint.

This initial release was limited to 500 pieces, however it is understood that a further 1,500 models will be issued at a later date, possibly with the addition of adverts. (Late November 2002 indeed saw the release of a further 1,500 models with China Paint banner adverts - DW10206B). Whilst the model clearly has air-con, it's front upper deck windows are of the non air-con type. Other inaccuracies are the 3 + 2 seating upstairs, the use of Island Resort as a destination, the registration number doesn't belong to Citybus, plus, of course, Citybus don't operate any such buses!!.

* - assumed model number

The bus - a totally fictitious bus!
