The model - this model was one of twelve plastic 1/160 scale Kowloon Motor Bus models unveiled at the Exihibition on the History of Hong Kong Buses in August 2009. These twelve models were released at the end of August 2009 and were labelled 'Volume 3'. 

The bus - KMB was the only customer for the Albion Victor VT23L and 100 examples were received during 1963/64. The 41-seat bodywork was delivered as ckd kits from Metal Sections. They featured two doorways, both of which were immediately behind each nearside wheelarch, and were initially fitted with tubular sliding gates operated by the conductor. These were later replaced by folding doors, as represented by this model.
