The model - this is one of a surprise pair of releases in Hong Kong on 16th April 2016. It is the first casting of the Albion Viking EVK55CL. Both feature the same bus on route 64K but with differing destinations (KLE16009).

The busKowloon Motor Bus took delivery of thirty Albion Viking EVK55CL chassis in 1976 and they were bodied in Hong Kong by Union Auto Body Builders (UABB). L308 was the last of the batch, being registered on 15th November 1976. During their life several of the batch were totally rebuilt by KMB and others received other alterations, most noticeable being the reduced height side windows. It was withdrawn on 3rd January 1992.
