My thanks to those of you who responded to yesterday's appeal for information about the Buses Model Leyland Olympian featured on the HKiTalk.net discussion group. It is a self-produced (Code 3) LM6 with an advertisement for the Patients' Charter by Hospital Authority. The owner of the model has also contacted me advising me of several other models he has modified and these can be found on his Fotopic site - just follow the link to C K Bus Model .

A photograph of the actual bus, LM6, can be found at China Motor Bus Memorial Page.
