The model - This Kowloon Motor Bus Neoplan Centroliner with Satami all-over advertising was the subject of a posting on Facebook by Satami in mid November 2017. I believe it offers a free model to the top 10 comments as to why you would like the bus in your collection. The model became generally available on 16th December 2017.

The busKowloon Motor Bus placed an initial order for 20 Neoplan N4026 Centroliners and the first arrived in Hong Kong in September 1998. This bus was allocated Fleet No. AP1 and registered  HY 1677. The Centroliner is a 12-metre low-floor double-decker and like the Dennis Tridents, is powered by a Cummins M11-305E engine.

After a series of trials, the Centroliners entered service on 1 August 1999. The first route that these buses were allocated was 296C, which runs between Sheung Tak in Tseung Kwan O and Tonkin Street in Sham Shui Po. By mid 2003, over 160 such vehicles were in the fleet.
