The model - following close on the heels of the Best Choose Tilling-Stevens released in July 2006 is this red and cream version with blue China Motor Bus fleetnames.

The bus - 108 Tilling-Stevens "Express" single-deck buses were ordered by China Motor Bus, the first entering service in February 1948.

56 of these buses were of the short wheelbase design, type K5LA4, whilst the remaining 52 were of the longer wheelbase, type K5LA7. These buses had dual entrances and had separate 1st and 2nd class saloons.

A noticeable feature of this design was the engine bonnet side panels, made of aluminium, but never painted.
