The model - this model carries the original 'air-con' livery applied by China Motor Bus. DA26 was one of the class to carry such a 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. Included in the box are two spare tyres, two driving mirrors a scale person carrying cases and a bus stop.

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