The model - This model was released in Hong Kong in June 2003.

The bus - This model depicts 4998 in its post 1972 condition. It first entered service in February 1950 and during 1964/65 its sliding gates were replaced by doors. In 1972, to denote that the vehicle carried only one seated conductor, three yellows bands were applied to the front. 4998, having now become D38, was withdrawn from service in February 1980.
