The model - this colourful model was an unexpected release on 10th May 2014, along with 38105. Both feature AD7110 in an all-over livery with the slogan on the rear in English 'Enjoy your countryparks'.  

The busKMB introduced 210 AEC Regent Mk V buses into its fleet between 1963 and 1966 to cater for increasing demand due to the rapid growth in population at that time. The bus was unprecedented at that time in terms of body length (34 feet) and passenger capacity (117 passengers). Three yellow bands on the front panel of the bus denoted the introduction of one conductor schem of the 1970s  whereby one seated conductor replaced the three roving conductors and changed the passengers' habit to boarding the bus at the front. These buses was deployed mainly on the busiest routes in the Kowloon Peninsula, such as 5, 6, 6B 6C, 6D and 11.
