Drumwell

The Drumwell Company has been the liason/go-between company for many of the famous diecast brand names over many years in Hong Kong.  Corgi and EFE have both used Drumwell and Corgi only withdrew from using them in 1998 - the KMB Daimler "A" on Route 1 being the last model produced for Corgi.
EFE is still produced through Drumwell. The NWFB Dart was also commissioned through Drumwell. The "Millennium 2000" Trident for NWFB also being a Drumwell model.

The first model to carry Drumwell branding was the Neoplan Centroliner, commissioned by KMB, and issued in December 1999. 

These models are only released in Hong Kong unless otherwise stated.
