The model - this is one of two models representing 3N112 released in May 2015. This version is on route 111 to Ping Shek.. The second (180104) is on route 1A to Sau Mau Ping Central.

Whilst the model carries a Marlboro advertising livery, Hong Kong legislation prevents toys or models being sold with any form of tobacco advertising. As a result an adhesive film has been applied, covering up the lettering. The model comes in a plain white box. 

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.
