The model - this is believed to be a specially commissioned model by Concorde Hobby Shop. Details were first posted by the company on Facebook on 18th December 2011 (see image below). This confirmed it was a P&T Model and that the quantity was 45 pieces, although no certificate is included. The model comes in a plain white box with no lettering whatsoever.

On 9th January 2012 I reported the following:-
"Featured on the Network Shuttle website is this resin KMB 12-metre non air-con Duple Metsec bodied Dennis Dragon. It features fleet no. 3N115 (DJ8496) on route 101 to Kennedy Town. It is believed to be limited to about 45 pieces and comes with no limited edition certificate. It appears to be a P&T model but commissioned by Concorde Hobby Shop."

I am grateful to DKWC for his assistance in confirming details of this model and for supplying photographs.
 
* - no product code is known for this model and I have used the fleet number instead

The bus
following successful trials of KMBs first 3 twelve-metre Dennis Dragons, a further 188 examples were delivered between November 1983 and November 1986. These production buses differed from the 3 prototypes in that they were fitted with Duple Metsec bodywork which featured a three door layout.
