BR era smoke deflectors but LNER 4472 green. She is an icon & that's a very nice model Thanks BarSide. I guess she is pretty much as the Museum has her. I didn't really give a lot of thought to what exact era I wanted to represent. In my day (late 40's to '51 when we emigrated to Canada) I used to see lots of A3's in Scotland with these smoke deflectors and I like the look of them. I've followed endless discussions on railway sites about what colour and what era FS should have been restored to and there's really no correct answer. I'm 78 now and I just wanted an A3 model that gives me great pleasure to look at and that's what she is. Thanks for the comment though.
