The model - this is one of two releases of Long Win Airbus liveried Olympian HH1452, both issued in Hong Kong in early March 2016. Both are on route E31 with differring destinations- see also 180120.  Corgi had planned to release this model back in 1998 but this was subsequently cancelled, although a few pre-production models do exist - follow this link.
* This is an unlicenced release and the model carries no Long Win fleetnames, although I believe these are included for the purchaser to add.  

The busKMB loaned five 11-metre Volvo Olympians (fleet nos. AV238-AV242) to Long Win Bus, prior to the arrival of their Dennis Tridents. Two of these received experimental Airbus liveries - AV239 (HH1412) received a white/orange/red livery whilst AV240 (HH1452) received this white/red livery.
