 'Vintage' liveried buses - November/December 2011
 
At the end of November 2011, Kowloon Motor Bus short Duple Metsec bodied Dennis Trident fleet no. ATS38 appeared in a vintage livery, sponsored by 80M Bus Model Shop. At the same time, 80M confirmed the imminent release of a model depicting this livery.

With certain small batches of vehicles, the opportunity for subsequent model releases
after the initial release is somewhat limited.
Clearly with the application of a 'vintage' livery, a new model release opportunity is opened up.
