The model - the livery featured on this model was never applied to the Dennis Condors of China Motor Bus, in fact, only six of the final batch of Volvo Olympians, delivered in 1998, received this silver and blue livery.

The model comes in the standard green 'Hong Kong Wonders' box and the limited edition certificate takes the form of a postcard, with an image of the Central Bus Terminus and Vehicular Ferry dated 1953 on one side and the certificate on the other. The rear light clusters are supplied for the purchaser to affix and also included are two spare tyres, two driving mirrors and a bus stop.

The manufacturers adhesive label on the box dates its release as 1998.  

The bus - the China Motor Bus 'DA' class entered service between 1990 and 1997. It consists of 92 vehicles, with DA1-DA56 featuring small top sliding windows, similar to UK vehicles, the windows being rubber mounted. DA57-82 have no opening windows, these still being rubber mounted, whilst the final batch, DA83-DA92, have bonded glazing. DA53 entered service in October 1993.
