Herr Mecklenburg Pommerschen Schmalspurbahn et al-

Wasn't there a design flaw with the model, they are a box inside, while the protytope, a box on the outside had sloping end sheets? I seem to remember this from a while back.

The other option is to scratchbuild some, Sidestreet Bannerworks has the plans for these cars, with the correct slope sheets.

I do have one of the Accurail short four wheel flatcars. A neat model that looks great behind my Bachmann Porters, but developed a bow when sitting in the sun?!?!

Here were the LGB ones that are "closest". They went to the UK to live behind a live steam loco.

Here is why I sold them, I bought some of the Bachmann ones. They are nice once you remove the huge ugly Bachmann couplers and replace them with some L&P ones from Ozark.

Here are some of the earlier all plastic ones that have had this done and some weathering. The only error in his modelling is his assumption that the center beam was wood on these cars, it was not, it was steel, at least on the several variants I have seen.

What is funny is one of the last of these type of cars I saw was a standard gauge one in New York state, built by Koppel in the US.
