I was taken as a baby to see Mallard when it appeared in York without  most of its streamline casing.I have no recollection of the day.But  I have been told I was  definately there when Mallard emerged out of the NRM

I'm very envious that you've not only seen her in steam, but like this too :D

'Tis a thing of beauty, my favourite train. You've captured her well. Are your drawings to scale?

They are to scale, though what the scale is, I can't remember :')

Excellent. I'm planning how to make wooden toy versions of the Mallard (possibly other A4s as well, but the cover of Blur's Modern Life is Rubbish isn't a great design for nothing) so this is very helpful.

She's not an easy profile to get right, and indeed to do justice of :)

When did Mallard look like that in the above illustration? I know Sir Nigel Gresley looked like that in overhaul.

Why is the whistle just in front of the smokestack?

Why? Because the Mallard was built that way, of course.
