|The model -
This resin model was released in Hong Kong on 18th June 2006. In July
2022 I was advised of a second version carrying the same product
code. This carries the registration 4595 .
- Kowloon Motor Bus received 30 Bedford OBs in 1946 and they were
withdrawn during 1959. Two different types of bodywork were carried by
these OBs, one a locally built body with 5 window bays between the front
and rear doors, the other featuring 4 window bays, on which this particular
model is based. A photograph of the actual 4227 can be found in Mike
Davis's excellent book "Hong
Kong Buses - Volume Two - Kowloon Motor Bus".
