The model - news of this model only came to light in April 2021 despite it being released over twenty years ago! On the day I posted details of the existence of this model, John Bennett contacted me to advise he owned the model and that he would take some photographs, which I received the following day! Thank you, John.

The bus - Kowloon Motor Bus ordered 100 Albion Victors in 1960 and these were delivered during 1961, the bodywork being assembled in Hong Kong having been shipped ckd (completely knocked down) as kits from British Aluminium Co. Ltd, England. They were originally fitted with tubular sliding gates but in the 1970s, during refurbishment, folding doors were fitted and the front radiator grille modified. 

The above information has been extracted from Mike Davis's excellent book
'Hong Kong Buses - Volume 2 - Kowloon Motor Bus'.
