Model Bus Evolution (MBE)
 
Model Bus Evolution entered the Hong Kong model bus market in November 2000, their first release being a Citybus 12-metre Dennis Dragon with Duple Metsec bodywork, but with the standard Alexander 'R' type front.  It is believed this company was linked to the Hong Kong Transport Society. This first release was made available to EFE subscribers. To-date, this is the only casting produced by this company. In October 2008, a New World First Bus liveried example was announced. These models are only released in Hong Kong unless otherwise stated.
