February 2015 saw the release of a new flash drive from VMS (Vehicles Model Studio). The 16GB drive takes the form of a Citybus Enviro500NG. It comes in an attractive silver presentation tin which has a perspex panel, showing off the drive, which sits in a foam insert, giving it perfect protection. The two lower photographs give a comparison in size with a 1/76 scale example (which is not included!). The drive retails for HK$100 and is available from VMS (Vehicles Model Studio) The postage cost to the UK for my sample totalled HK$30.10, recorded delivery. For those who don't have access to Facebook but are interested in acquiring one, please e-mail me and I can provide an e-mail contact.

The product is named 'Out Best Moment with HK tramways'; it allows customer to put photographs of their special memories into the frame, which is magetised and can be attached to a metal object, or can be placed on a table using the built in stand.

The frame is very colorful, which recall your best moment with the Hong Kong tramways or in Hong Kong. The different coloured trams represent the vividness and joy of Hong Kong!

Click on image for larger photograph Released in early June 2011 was a set of 5 solar flash plates (key fobs) from the JR Team. This first set, pictured above, is based on Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Pier. The five items (TK01 - TK05) are available from 80M Bus Model Shop and Concorde Hobby Shop and retails for HK$38. Further information can be found on the following page of the JR Team website.

News of this item first appeared on 5th January 2006.

The item in question is actually a digital alarm clock, released by 80M Bus Model.  On the lower part of the clock, there is a light sensor. When an item (not only Octopus cards...) is placed in front of it, blocking its light source, the green LED will light up and the buzzer will give a 'beep' sound, resembling the actions of a real Octopus reader (although I am advised that the sound does not resemble it that much!).

Pictured here are two interesting items currently available in Hong Kong (January 2006). They are double decker shaped calendar and photo frame. They are made of clear rigid plastic with 6 calendar sheets (double side printing) inside for this year. A favourite photo can be placed at the top deck. They retail at HK$ 65 each. The model shown between the two calendars is a 1/76th scale.
