The model - This is one of two versions of Buses Model's Alexander bodied Dennis Jubilant released on 3rd June 2016, the other featuring DS24 (BDC24082).

The bus - DS30 was the last of a batch of 30 vehicles purchased by CMB in 1980 and entered service on 9th May of that year. Fitted with Alexander 'CB' bodywork, the most noticeable difference between these Dennis Jubilants and the similarly bodied Leyland Victorys was the lack of a radiator filler cap between the top of the radiator grille and the windscreen. Upon the demise of CMB, DS30 was transferred to New World First Bus on 1st September 1998, and with one of the conditions of the new Company's franchise requiring them to be operating a 100% air-conditioned fleet within two years. It was withdrawn in December 1998.
