PFC bulk flour containers

Darryl Bond over at Motorised Dandruff has built a pair of these containers, which NZ Railways Rolling Stock states were first introduced in 1972. They're similar to Peter Bryant's Bulk plaster containers. They were later put onto UK container wagons and classified UKP:

However the bulk flour containers were significantly different in design...

Here they are unloading at Ngauranga from an old Rails magazine:

Here's a plan I found in the "Rolling Stock Operational Wagons" book:

And of course... in NZ Rail colours:

So I've whipped this up:

Just waiting for it to be ready for sale...

UPDATE: now available for sale - US$25 for normal detail plastic and $35 for FUD.
