Citybus's new new dual-door Dennis Dart, (44701) is due to be released in Hong Kong on 21st July. 3,500 will be released in Hong Kong with 1,550 being available in the UK through Corgi Goldstar Stockists.

I am led to believe that 2,500 of Corgi's KMB Dragon Boat Festival Olympian (43222) are to become available in the UK through Corgi Goldstar Stockists, at their normal recommended retail price - good news for those who have yet to acquire one!

I have just received photographs of the Corgi's Captain KMB Trident, EFE's CMB liveried DMS and Corgi's dual door Dart.

The August-September issue of "Model Buses" has just been released and includes a full page article on the new Dennis Jubilant from Collector's Model. Also included is an article by Simon Ayres, a regular contributor to this Site, on how he converted Model No 43214, the Capital Citybus Olympian, to a single-door version. For more information go to the Model Buses Site.
