Often the Courtenay version of any given model from RCNZ looks to be the poorer cousin in terms of cabinet - but in the 95 the Columbus is the not-so-pretty model. 5-valve dual-wave radio.

Chassis Notes(most schematics can be clicked to download a full size version)
One schematic seen - for model 94. 95 is the same but with a dual-wave coil setup. Chassis is an unusual size and shape - over 3" deep and folded metal, not pressed like most.
General Construction Notes for Radio Corporation of New Zealand Ltd: The first digit of the serial number typically indicates the year of manufacture of RCNZ chassis' (although not the decade - that requires a little knowledge of the valves, construction, etc). Sets from around 1934 onwards were often (but not always) constructed in a distinctive pressed 'baking pan' style chassis, seemingly unique to RCNZ.
