The model - a surprise release on 6th April 2012 was this plain white Volvo Olympian. Clearly not a licensed KMB product, it comes with a separate decal sheet with banner ads for the Government's campaign to prevent Japanese Encephalitis and Dengue Fever. A choice of eight route numbers is provided and I believe three vehicle identifications. The actual livery was carried by fleet number S3V29 and a photograph of this vehicle is included below. 

The bus - The arrival in May/June 1995 of this final batch of 30 buses completed the order for 500 Leyland Olympians, however,  by the time they arrived, they were in fact Volvo Olympians. They are the last non air-conditioned buses to be delivered to KMB.
