The model - this is one of two unexpected releases on 19th December 2014, both featuring what appears to be a new casting of Kowloon Motor Bus's 12 metre, three door Duple Metsec bodied Dennis Dragon. The other features 3N126 (180102). The absence of KMB logos leads me to believe these are not licensed models.    

The busfollowing successful trials of KMB's first 3 twelve-metre Dennis Dragons, a further 188 examples were delivered between November 1983 and November 1986. These production buses differed from the 3 prototypes in that they were fitted with Duple Metsec bodywork which featured a three door layout.
