The model - announced on this site on 13th January 2009 was the release of this model, another commission from Concorde Hobby Shop. Two versions are expected to be released shortly, each version limited to just 150 pieces.

The bus - With a shortage of vehicles, KMB took delivery of 100 standard UK Seddon Pennine 4s between 1970-1972. The only modification was the fitting of sliding side windows. The lack of front opening windows proved unpopular and by 1975 vehicles were receiving new 'front-ends' by KMB themselves. Many received other modifications, which are superbly illustrated in Mike Davis excellent book 'Hong Kong Buses - Volume 2 - Kowloon Motor Bus', from which the aforementioned has been extracted. Published by DTS Publishing.
