WANTED - Murphy Models coach MM5609

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

I'm looking for a Murphy Models coach MM5609 (EGV in IE with orange roof)in order to complete a set.

 

I had a chance to buy one two weeks ago for €73 but made a mess of my bidding on eBay and ran out of time. When I noticed the mess the bid had closed two minutes earlier. To say I'm gutted is an understatement. Gobshit comes to mind!!!

 

I would really appreciate it if someone had one that they would be willing to sell.

 

Regards,

 

Ray.

I recently picked one of those up from Marks and plan to spray the two white stripes onto it (IE/IR tippex livery). Costs less compared to sometimes silly eBay prices. The previous IE/IR orange roofed EGV that was on eBay went for over €250, so €73 wasn't bad value but €56 is better still.

A big thank you to Tony (Tarabuses) for selling me one. He had two and was very generous to let me have one of them.

 

He's a gentleman.

 

Thanks again Tony.

 

Regards,

 

Ray.

I repainted some BR Mk 3's about 1990. To add the "tippex" lines, I just used a commercially available "letraset" lining of the right scale width, that you'd get in any stationery shop and varnished over it.
