An early (1930's?) green Hornby Series 4-4-2 No.3 locomotive and tender, LNER 4472, finished with the Flying Scotsman name and running number.

This is a slightly "loose" representation, as the real Flying Scotsman is a 4-6-2 locomotive.

Paintwork

The paintwork on this model is "odd" in that it doesn't seem to have been finished. The Flying Scotsman in green livery usually had the first band of its boiler painted black, and this is how the model appeared in the Hornby advertising, but on this example, only the front face of the loco is black, and the rest of the front section has been left green.
