Not too far off the mark @Galteemore
I think its similar to last year when some coaches were offered for sale from  "foreign parts"
Rumour has it that the manufacturer may have made more than was ordered, held them for a while and then offered them for sale through a third party, only down the price of labour and parts, so would stand to make a healthy profit

Bargain, well done 👏

It has arrived...

The bogies are definitely not 21mm-friendly. Come to think of it, they're not even normal P4-friendly, and would need a lot of filing at the back to make room for 18.83 wheelsets.

Anyone after one of my long out of production CIE Gunpowder vans? At a reasonable price, too.

See:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/235452052346?mkevt=1&mkpid=0&emsid=e11021.m43.l1120&mkcid=7&ch=osgood&euid=d6d5c7faeb0c407389f9161f154a74fc&bu=43025934942&ut=RU&osub=-1~1&crd=20240311043050&segname=11021

By the way, it's not me selling, the seller seems to live in my home town!

Can the bogies themselves be widened by splitting down the centre and padding out?

 

Few eBay items that may be of interest to somebody.

I think it should be possible to separate the sides from the central structure and then grafting in extension pieces to widen it before gluing the sides back on.

That's the only thing I can think of as I don't think IRM B4s are available as spares and, anyway, their mounting is a bit different to Murphy's.

Not aware of sprung bogies being available for 21mm, but could be adapted from P4 ones.

https://www.ebay.es/itm/186369572821

Photos look like they were taken with a potato peeler, but there are a few interesting bits in one photo that you could probably hassle the seller over.

Vertical photos and videos, ugh, who the Hell does that???

Quite a good price given the jump in pricing for the new batch of 141's / 181's.

 

Happy spending!

Just occurs to me..... obviously this thing is grey, as everything was then (black is always wrong for these as none lasted to the 1950s); but somewhere in the cobweb of my mind is a notion - possibly driven by a photo showing faded lined transfer lettering - suggesting that the dark coach maroon might have appeared on one anyway....very highly unlikely, but I wonder did anyone else have any thoughts on this....
