- This model was an unexpected release, issued on 4th January 2002, and
whilst being a Drumwell casting, it's release has been through Model Bus
Evolution. It is commissioned by China Paint, and the model carries an
appropriate "rear-end" ad. It features on board tv screens, with the Roadshow
decal in the front nearside windscreen.
There are two certificates attached with
the model package. Whilst the English one shows the quantity issued, the
Chinese reads as follows:
1/76 Citybus Volvo Super Olympian model -
from China Paint
The rest of the note basically teaches the
collectors how to open and close the engine cover at the rear without causing
The bus -
a totally fictitious model, as Citybus have no Volvo Super Olympians. The
model carries the fleet number 410, this being a 12-metre Volvo Olympian,
which is pictured at the bottom of the page.
I am very grateful to Dennis Law for providing
the majority of the above information.
