The model - Corgi/KMB again used modeller's licence on this 1998 'Year of the Tiger' model. This livery was in fact applied to a 12 metre Duple Metsec bodied Dennis Dragon  3AD52 (see photograph below). A very sought after model, being the first in the KMB 'Year of ' series of models, all of which, to-date (January 2006), have been based on the Olympian casting.

The bus - as mentioned above, the model does not represent an actual vehicle.
