The model - the third model in the Heritage Collection Series from New World First Bus is this specially decorated Victory (LV30) marking the end of twenty years loyal service for the Victory. New World First Bus has allocated this model their product code 20004. 

It was announced in March 2001 that a small quantity of these models were to be made available in the UK. This small quantity appears to be quite a few, as this model can be found at many swapmeets for under UKŁ20.00!

The bus - LV30 was one of 167 Leyland Victory Mk 2 buses delivered to China Motor Bus between 1980 and 1982. These were transferred to New World First Bus on 1st August 1998 when China Motor Bus lost its franchised routes to Nwe World First Bus. LV30 was first registered on 26th September 1980.
