The model - this is one of two Daimler 'A's to be released by Kowloon Motor Bus on 27th July 2017, the other featuring one with a 'Birmingham' style radiater (KMB-M-2017038).

The bus - 4966 was delivered new to KMB in May 1949, with only a rear platform entrance/exit. In 1955, a front entrance was installed, and sliding gates fitted. In 1964/5, the gates were relaced with doors, and in 1974, when KMB renumbered their fleet, 4966 became D31. It was withdrawn in January 1980.
