The model - announced on this site on 12th August, this model was released on 25th October 2004, being the first diecast model from 80M Bus Model Shop. 

The bus - Fleet No. 2800 is another unique vehicle in the Citybus fleet. It entered service in December 2001.

Citybus managing director, Lyndon Rees, unveiled Hong Kong Island's newest 'smart bus depot' at Chai Wan on 28 July 2004, to coincide with the bus operator's 25th anniversary in the Territory. Scania/Volgren No. 2800 received a special 25th Anniversary livery. 

I am told that the bus should be classified as having Volgren CR224LD bodywork, as the 224 series is for buses with Omnicity fronts, but it carried a CR223LD sticker before it was repainted into Stagecoach style Citybus livery.

Further photographs of the real bus can be found here
