What you have to be aware of with the locomotives is that they are not a matching pair and were very much prototypes. 10000 and 10001 were both different with different grille and roof configurations. They were also changed every couple of years as the reign adapted. So a model suitable for LMS 10000 would not be suitable for a green liveried 10001

Valid points, and in this day and age I don't think a good proportion of people would be happy to accept a multitude of liveries on a generic body shell.

The cost of tooling the different variants and then setting up for a number of different short production runs probably makes this a prohibitively expensive choice of model?

Back to the Metrovick Co-Bo possibly??
