To-date is is believed there have been five models of Xian Silver's product. The first, thought to have been issued in 2005, is this 1/76 scale Volvo B10M. This certificated model is limited to 500 pieces and comes in a blue Volvo box. It sits on a wooden effect plinth. The limited edition certificate is I believe on the underside of the plinth and the same limited edition number is displayed as the front registration number. The rear registration number reads B10M.

This 1/54 scale model of the 9300 was produced in 2006. This model was purchased in Guangzhou and is the  first 9300 model in the market. Further details including date of release, quantity, or manufacturer of this model are unknown - the box shows Xian Silver Bus Corporation.

Next is another livery on the same casting which was bought second hand in Hong Kong, so the condition of this model is not prefect. Again, very little information is known, but it is believed to have been issued in 2009. It is also understood to be very rare!

The next model is a 1/54 scale 9600. The 9600 is the latest product of Xian Silver Bus which based on the Volvo B9R chassis. It was released in 2009. This model was purchased from a model retail shop in ShenZhen. It carries a sharp blue livery, and displays 'Volvo Ocean Race 2008-2009' lettering.
