- this model was issued in Hong Kong in June 1999.
I have just received
my "Wish Bus", and believe it to be the best model issued by Corgi to-date.
Included with the model is a sheet of transfers, including over 100 gold
ingots, which can be added to the bus, if desired - a nice touch!
- 13 July 1999.
- in February 1999, to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit, New World First
Bus decorated Fleet No. 1088, an Alexander bodied Dennis Trident in red/orange,
with patterns that symbolised luck and happiness. The bus carried the God
of Wealth to all districts on Hong Kong Island, bringing best wishes to
the community, and passengers were able to write their personal New Year
messages on lucky gold ingots attached to the bus.
