I can only find one Maunsell Brake Composite in BR SR Green and one in BR Crimson & Cream. However, I need two Maunsell Brake Composites in BR SR Green to go with my two Maunsell Brake Seconds in BR SR Green.

That is correct. the 4 compartment thirds go with the compo to make a 3-car set, and the BCKs are add ons for coaches to the branches of the withered arm etc. Yes they only are doing one and i'd like two as well.

Pre order placed, 146.

Sounds like a renumbering job needed

To be honest, i would have thought Dapol needed to get as much back from the new moulds as soon as possible.
I don't see what's wrong with them milking the Maunsell cow.
You get more milk than from a Bullied cow :)

They issued two running number models of every type in every livery before. I also need to purchase some BR SR era buffet / restaurant car kits to make up to go with my Bulleid coaches.

Received my 3-set this morning. They are quite exquisite and employ a nice gangway interconnection as well.

Rails and Hattons both have the SR lined green 3rd brakes and compo brakes but neither appear to have the 3 set 394 as yet although Dapol show it as going to stockists at the same time as the single coaches.
I'm reminded of an acronym from service days - SNAFU.

Both Rails and Hattons have the 3-set listed. I could pick it when making up my order yesterday at Hattons, and saw the Rails entry while I was browsing for other stuff at Rails...

And I was advised on Friday - and they arrived today! These are 4-compartment brakes Nos 3214 and 3215 for my Bournemouth Ltd service. I have to say they look superb.

Still no news from Rails, they are showing them as arrived but I've not had a request for payment as yet.
