The model - the third release of the Mitsubishi Fuso casting features AM159 in a Christmas livery and was announced on 12th November 2010. It was released on 28th November 2010 during my visit to Hong kong and soon sold out.

The bus - to fill the gap between the smaller Toyota Coaster minibuses and the full size single deckers, Kowloon Motor Bus took delivery of 168 Mitsubishi Fuso MK117J between May 1990 and September 1993. All were fitted with air-conditioning and operated a variety of routes. Some featured a luggage area for use of the airport routes. AM159 entered service on 1 June 1993. This livery was applied in early November 2010.
