The model - ABC Model's third Leyland Victory Mk2 carries the later New Lantau Bus livery  In addition to the usual features, this model has a sliding driver's door. The model was released in Hong Kong during February 2000. 

A number (or should I say at least one!) of these models carries additional printing on the roof (see photo below), namely 'Bus Fan World - Presented on the occasion of the 8th Annual Dinner'

The bus - New Lantau Motor Bus Company (1973) Ltd, or NLB for short, purchased 15 Leyland Victory Mk 2s, some being acquired second-hand from Kowloon Motor Bus. The original livery was red and yellow, but when the company was acquired by Kwoon Chung Motor Co Ltd in early 1992, several vehicles received this new new green and white and gold livery. LD 7 was new to the company in January 1982 and was withdrawn in 1993.
