In answer to a reader's query about the replacement grilles on my model of 44010, here are a few images of the loco. Fitted with a set of A1 Models grilles, it represents one of only two Class 44s with this US-style of grille arrangement (44009 being the other). The etched replacement grilles are now very hard to come by and, to be honest, were a bit ropey in terms of the rendering of the fine slats.

A new (and far superior) source for these grilles, along with other essential Class 44 details, is PH Designs.
