The model - The fifth release from Collector's Model, is again a China Motor Bus example, but carrying an allover advertisement for Winners Cigarettes.

This model was released in Hong Kong in early October 1999, with examples becoming available in the UK at the end of November 1999.

The bus - still not totally happy with its rear-engined buses, China Motor Bus took delivery of 167 front-engined Leyland Victory Mk2s between 1979 and 1982. These featured Alexander 'CB' bodywork with seating in a 3+2 layout, with the exception of the final batch of 20, which were fitted with Metsec bodies.
