The below is again another paste from other forums, construction phase blog might be included sometime after like on Fury but unsure yet, anyway. This is my 2nd attempt at Gordons first version how he was likelt to be seen in 1923 upon arival to Sodor. I did a version before which was just a repainted Hornby Great Northern and nothing more but due to more information and more plausable research mainly conducted by S.A.C Martin and Sean O'Connor the version below is the result. The center of the running plate is angular rather than curved, this is because S.A.C.Martin would rather it be angular to look more raw and less polished, but we also agreed it 'in reality' could have been curved like the sides and illustrations. I only inclue that information because on a personal level I'd rather it curved but have refrained, however, EITHER could be correct as the locomotive probably never even existed! The middle cylinder will fit anyway. I am dabbeling with the idea of a removable center plate I might add, then I could swap the parts at will! Shouldn't be too hard as long as I'm neat and careful.
