The model - following the release by Buses Model Co. of their China Motor Bus liveried MCW Metrobus, it was only a matter of time before a Kowloon Motor Bus example arrived, and this came in the form of two releases, both featuring the same bus but in different guises. Both were released on 29th October 2016 and this model represents the bus carrying fleet number 3M1. As this is not a licensed release, it carries no KMB logos.

The busM1 was the first of three prototype 12 metre MCW "Super" Metrobuses ordered by KMB for evaluation, arriving in Hong Kong in May 1981. It was later renumbered 3M1, the "3" being added to denote 3-axle vehicles.
