Scotch 3M (Hong Kong) appear to have a promotion that involves four Scotch liveried Gemini bodied Volvos - I am unable to ascertain the exact details but here is a link to the appropriate page.

Update 8th February

My thanks to Philip Chan for providing a general explanation of the above - Participants who buy more than HK$300 Scotch product can post the invoice to redeem one of the bus models. Since there are only 200 models available, if there are more than 200 participants, models will be allocated according to the monetary amount of the invoice.

The news posted earlier today regarding the release of two 12.8 metre New World First Bus bus types is NOT confirmed and I would like to apologise to Model 1 for this error.
