Mitsubishi Fuso MP 'Sapporo City Memorial - Old Livery'

Sapporo City Transportation Bureau's Bus Section, established in 1930, will close it's 74 year history in March 2004. The old livery was popular among citizens. This model reproduced the historic livery on a current miniature bus as remembrance.

This model was listed in the Press Release from Creative Master Northcord Ltd dated 14th November 2003.

A subsequent Press Release on 9th March 2004 reads :

"Whilst CMNL had anticipated being able to release some of its JB1006 product onto the open market, the entire production run was purchased by a single agent. Consequently, CMNL deeply regrets that no models of JB1006 will be available for the Hong Kong or UK enthusiast or collector market by open sale."

It is believed that the single agent is Club Busrama, part of Porte Publishing Co, which is the CMNL distributor in Japan.
