It's a car very similar to type 120A. Both of them were produced by PaFaWag in Wrocław in seventies (120A until mid-eighties). We had a lot of those in Poland, mostly used in regional trafic, and some of them are still in use today. Two easily noticeable differences are triangular protrusions near doors - Polish version doesn't have them - and windows with tilting upper part - Polish 120A has upper part shifting down past the lower part (so three decades ago, when many trains were *really* crowded, fit and slim people were able to get inside through the windows to get a sitting place - and it's not a joke). Those two features of the Romanian version were inherited from earlier Polish car - 43A (colloquialy known as "ryflak" - the ribbed one). According to InfoRail website another important difference were bogies - licensed Minden-Deutz instead of Polish 4ANc.CFRiad wrote:Part four of the CFR series about periods IV and V (1970 - 2000): short-haul and suburban/commuter cars for domestic service only (not RIC compliant)
Series 11-47/21-47 These suburban cars were built in the 70’s. All first class and most (~850) second class units were built in Romania. About 180 second class units were imported from Poland. They are 24.5 metres long, otherwise they look a bit like the German Silberlings. The cars have radiant heating using steam and single voltage (1500 V AC) electric heat sources. The Romanian-made cars have a ribbed roof and exposed access stairs. The units made in Poland have smooth roofs and the car body projects downwards to encase the access stairs.
Here for comparison a picture of the Romanian one.
A TT model of 120A is produced by Maciej Turkowski - Matu Model.
The price stated at the website is 55 EUR for a kit (assuming 1 EUR = 4,20 PLN; ready to run Polish cars are from 83 to 107 EUR). The question is wheather Minden-Deutz bogies of the variety used in Romanian version of this car are avaliable in TT (+different windows, triangular protrusions and most probably modifications of the interior of the car).

As for the Gags model manufactured by Karsei, the original cars were made by UV Arad in Romania (dr-wagen database says: year 1964/65) and imported to East Germany. So as far as the export version for DDR was identical to the domestic one then all you have to do is to print decals. :-)
Well, Tillig's mold shows a German car after some modernisation (made probably in the period of DB AG). AFAIK original version made in 70s had only two ribs (the first and the last one - fortunately those are the ones that seem to match the Romanian car). Does length of the model matches the original?
