V2003 - Dennis Jubilant/Alexander
Kowloon Motor Bus
 
The model - this livery was originally applied to V107A which was issued in June 2000, with a quantity of TWO.

This version carries the same livery, although it bears a different route number and destination. The same fleet number is applied. The model is secured in the same way as the early C'sM releases were secured, by thin wire wrapped around the axles and secured to the base. It appears that C'sM failed to fit the clear plastic moulding that holds the top of the bus in place in the box and as a result the model is only held by its axles, which has resulted in many models coming apart during transit, as indicated in the photo below.

The box is actually meant for a Daimler/Leyland "short" Fleetline, as the photo below shows.

The bus - After successful trials with 4 prototype Dennis Jubilants, KMB placed orders for a further 360 examples, these being delivered between May 1979 and May 1982. The first batches carried bodywork by Walter Alexander, whilst the final batch of 150 were bodied by Duple/Metsec, in the form of ckd kits.
