The model - This new casting follows closely on the heels of the Best Choose China Motor Bus Leyland Victory Mk2 example (03061), which tends to indicate both models are based on the same casting. The model was released in Hong Kong on Saturday 21st February 2004.

The bus - Kowloon Motor Bus acquired almost 360 Dennis Jubilants between 1979 and 1982. The first batches carried Alexander bodywork, however, the final batch of 150 (N214-363) were bodied by Duple Metsec. N289 entered service on 17 September 1981.
