The model - Having made the significant success of its cnbus 1010 model, Creative Master Northcord Limited has proudly released its latest example of the newly re-tooled Sunwin model, cnbus 1013. It is carrying the standard Shanghai Ba-Shi Group livery.

cnbus 1013 features the new CNG (compressed natural gas) tank on the roof of the well known Shanghai Sunwin casting. It has the “rabbit ear” style rear-view mirror as featured on the early cnbus series models. The rear dome and deeper engine access door are further notable modifications to the original cnbus 1000 range casting.

Shanghai Ba-Shi Group is the biggest bus operator in Shanghai and it has a substantial fleet of Sunwin SWB6115Q-3 CNG buses. The chassis and body were developed by Shanghai Sunwin Bus Corporation and it has an environmentally friendly engine that is able to meet the emission standard of Euro3. The CNG buses were specially designed for the “Green City”. 

cnbus 1013 represents fleet number GK-111 and it is featured running on route 90. The model features the more modern Sunwin Corporation logo on its front dash panel.

The cnbus 1013 model is limited to 1000 pieces for worldwide distribution. They will be distributed by John Ayrey Die-Casts Limited (UK), Porte Publishing Company (Japan), Transit Graphics (Australia), cnmycar.com (P.R. China) and Concorde Hobby Shop (HK) respectively.
