The model - this must be the most sought after model in the collection, with only 500 models being produced. It was commissioned by BusPak, a Hong Kong company responsible internationally for advertising on and around buses.  One sold on a popular 'on-line' auction site in October 2007 for 256.
 
I finally managed to acquire this model in July 2020, through Jacky at MSD Bus in Hong Kong. The model is obviously second-hand but bearing in mind it is almost 23 years-old, I am very pleased to have finally obtained it, thus filling another gap in the collection!

The bus - the model does not represent an actual vehicle
