The model - Released in Hong Kong in late October 2002 is this 11-metre KMB Dennis Dragon with special all-over advertising to mark the 75th anniversary of Pak Fah Yeow (White Flower Embrocation). The model is limited to 400 pieces.

Unfortunately the casting used for this model, and for that matter the "Promise" and "Double Happiness" is the CMB Condor casting, and other points are as follows:-

  •   the model should feature square corners to the glazing
  •   the seats are far less detailed than earlier models
  •   the air-con blades behind the grilles are no longer fitted
  •   the nearside route number is positioned above the window instead of at the bottom edge of the window
  •   the model carries Fleet No. AD218, which should read AD259
  • My thanks to Peter Owens for the above information
