- Corgi initially allocated the product code of this model to Kowloon
Bus and the model, which was due to be released in June 1998, was to
Long Win 'Airbus' white/red livery (for details follow this link).
This model was subsequently cancelled and the product code was
to the first of three New World First Bus Volvo Olympians, all of which
carried cryptic between-decks banner adverts for the operator. Details
of the production version can be found by following this link.
differences between the preproduction
and production can clearly be seen in the photographs below.
