The model - this model carries anti-smoking decals and was issued on 27th January 2018, but only to Buses Model Co. members or their Facebook fans. It was issued to mark the 17th anniversary of Buses Model Co.

The busLM5 was one of a batch of ten - CMB's last non-air conditioned buses. These ten vehicles entered service during December 1993. 

All ten vehicles were transferred to New World First Bus in September 1998, however, as part of that Company's policy of withdrawal of non air-con buses, the whole batch was withdrawn early in 2000. 

In July 2000, the batch arrived back in the UK, having been completely refurbished, repainted and converted to single door, for operation by First PMT. They were subsequently transferred to First Manchester, operating mainly on route 17 from Manchester Arndale Centre to Rochdale.
