The model - This and sister vehicle L268 were issued in late August 2006. Both carry the same product code and it is believed two-hundred pieces of each were produced. 

The bus - Kowloon Motor Bus took delivery of 50 Leyland 'Albion' Viking EVK41XL between October 1970 and August 1971. They were the first KMB single deck buses to be fitted with folding doors. In 1973/4 they were allocated fleet numbers L220-L269.
