|The model -
details first emerged in late November 2014 that A&K Models were to
release two AEC Regent Mk V models representing A80 and A162 (38902). No
further updates were received until in early March 2015 these two
models were featured on the Concorde Hobby Shop Facebook page, albeit
with the producer having changed from A&K Models to Fulltech, a new
name in model bus production. It is not a licensed product of KMB and therefore separate decals are provided for the purchaser to apply.
Motor Bus introduced 210 AEC Regent Mk V buses into
and 1966 to cater for increasing demand due to the rapid
population at that time. The bus was unprecedented at that
time in terms of body length (34 feet) and passenger capacity
(117 passengers). To cope with 'one-man-operation' scheme in the mid
1970s , the exit door and staircase of the AEC Regent V buses were
removed from the rear and rebuilt in the midlle of the
buses was deployed on urban and Shatin district route
6A, 6C, 13 and 80K until their retirement in 1987.
