The model - details of this model only came to light in February 2021, thanks to Nixon Lo. Since then, and thanks to DKW Chau, I can confirm this is one of three similar models issued at the same time, the others feature 3N23 (B0043-690) and 3N16 (B0043-3D). 

The bus
following successful trials of KMB's 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.
