- yet another unexpected release from Collector's Model in what is already
a hectic a month for new models, this KMB Leyland Victory, G224, carries
all over adverts for Nissin Foods, and in particular Nissin Demae Ramen
instant noodles. It's a popular product in H.K. as well as in Asian/Chinese
enclaves in the U.S.
The bus - Kowloon Motor Bus took delivery of over 500
Leyland Victory Mk 2 buses between May 1979 and February 1983. They
were numbered G5-544. G5-G155 featured an external sliding driver's cab
door. Later batches featured an internal sliding driver's cab door.
G346-543 saw the removal of the radiator filler cap just below the
windscreen and a deeper windscreen than the earlier batches. G224 was
first registered on 17th September 1980.
