The model - to mark the 10th anniversary of Model 1 in October 2020, the company commissioned advertising on two buses, one being New World First Bus Wrights Gemini bodied Volvo B9TL 4503 and the other being Citybus 12.8 metre ADL 'facelift' Enviro500 6419. Having previously released both these buses in model form, the company re-issued these with the addition of decals to mark this anniversary. The quantity for this model and the original are a combined 688 pieces. Details of the Citybus model can be found here (63347B) whilst details of the original release of 4503 can be found here (63603).
Owing to a shortage of models of the original release of 4503, Model 1 subsequently altered the fleet number number of 63601, which was originally 4523, to 4503, enabling them to represent the actual bus and 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 - see 63601C.

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. 4503 was first registered 22nd June 2015.
