Another 80M Bus Model release, announced and available on 12th September 2003.

This recovery truck was purchased from China Motor Bus in 2001. It had been kept by CMB after they lost their franchise in 1998, presumably they wanted it in case one of their remaining Darts broke down. However by 2001 it was decided to sell it to Citybus along with 2 Volvo Olympians with a Volvo B6LE going to join their fleet. The Hino went to the Siu Ho Wan depot where it replaced one of the Victory tow trucks (one of which was nicely produced in model form by Supreme). That Victory tow truck is now withdrawn and slowly being canibalised for spares.
