The modelthis model is a re-issue of 63601 but with the application of Model 1 10th anniversary decals.

Owing to a shortage of models of the original release of 4503 (the actual bus that carried these decals), Model 1 subsequently altered the fleet number number of 63601 from 4523 to 4503, thus enabling them to represent the actual bus. This model was allocated a product code of 63601A.
 
Just to add confusion, a few models were released with the original fleet number of 4523, but with 10th anniversary decals, of which this is one!

 
My thanks to Dennis KW Chau for advising me of this variation and for supplying the photographs.

The bus - New World First Bus took delivery of thirty 11.3 metre Wrights Gemini 2 bodied Volvo B9TLs between May 2015 and February 2016, allocating them the fleet numbers 4500-4529. 4523 was first registered 30th December 2015.
