The model - this model was released in Hong Kong on 31 July 2002 and appeared in the UK in November that same year.

The bus - 2101 is one of eleven Alexander ALX500 bodied Dennis Tridents which joined the Citybus fleet in 1998. They were built as airport coaches, and have been used on the E-series external routes which links Tung Chung New Town and the urban districts, before Chek Lap Kok Airport was opened in July 1998.

These 11 coaches were originally painted in Citybus corporate livery, but 2101 and 2102 were re-painted into Cityflyer livery after they joined their Duple Metsec bodied sister vehicles serving on the A-series airport routes. Both buses were later repainted into a special "flying chess" livery (see photograph below) when they were allocated as scheduled buses on Citybus's newly launched external route E22A, which operates between the airport and Tseung Kwan O District.
