The model - it is believed this model is a pre-production example of Corgi CMB Leyland Victory No. 44806. It differs in many respects and these differences are summarised below:-

(1) Generally, the blue portion and the black strip at the middle is higher (showing the livery used on LV1 in later years)
(2) The font type use for destination blinds is different (while this variation is correct)
(3) For the front mirrors, cream colour was painted (incorrect variation)
(4) For the left side body, different position of "LV1", "China Motor Bus" and "Exit (Chinese word)" (also showing the livery used on LV1 in later years). In addition, the words of "Emergency Door Control" and "Permitted Carrying Capacity" were in white colour (incorrect, should be in red).
(5)For the rear, the "round-corner type" bumper was used (i.e. the type used in Corgi #44801 - LV36) instead of the "angular type". 
("Round-corner type" bumper used in all LV in later years, but it should be in blue colour, not in black")
(6) For the right side, no different was found. (Except the area of the blue portion mentioned earlier.)
