- once Best Choose had produced the China Motor Bus version of the ECW
Olympian (04062), it was only a matter of time
before the KMB version was modelled, and this was announced in KMB Today
in September 2004 and reported on this site on 10 September. The model
represents the vehicle in it's early years, as in 1983/4 it was repainted
into the all-over cream livery. The model was released in Hong Kong on
5th November 2004.
- in 1980 KMB ordered three of Leyland's new chassis, the Olympian, for
evaluation purposes. All three were 10.3metre length models. Bodywork was
ECW's standard lowheight style, but featured full-depth opening windows
and the usual narrow front entrance.
