Class 44 grilles query

In answer to a Reader's query about the replacement grilles on my model of 44010, that appeared in one of my detailing books, 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.

Anyway, I hope these images clear up all of the questions raised in Mr Phillips' Email.
