The model - in August 2021 I was lucky enough to be offered first refusal on a pre-production (p/p) sample of Corgi's Citybus Plaxton Pointer bodied Dennis Dart. The production model was released in December 1997 and details of this model can be found here (42803).

There are several differences between the p/p sample and the production version, all of which can be spotted in the comparison photographs below. See how many you can spot and then compare your findings with those I have spotted, and listed, below!
