The model - A nice model supplied with a liner decorated with photographs and an advertisement for Danny Chan's Macau bus handbook (see picture below).   Although the prototype is a two-door bus, the model does not look wrong.  The roof-mounted air conditioning plant is moulded in plastic and is more detailed than the Corgi equivalent.  The metal poles joining the base to the body are covered in a yellow film, which gives the impression that they are handrails, a feature which unfortunately has not been perpetuated in later releases. This model was issued offered through the EFE Subscriber Service.
