I found a photo of this loco as exworks on the net.I`m not certain whether the background colour was red or black,i also found a Golden Age loco with this finish & red backed plates.The plates are from the Modelmaster heritage range which are made to fit the raised pad.The LMS livery is correct for late 1947 to early 1948.

I used Modelmaster plates on my Duchess of Atholl conversion/restoration: they are excellent and, as you said, designed to fit the overscale raised plinth used for the original HD transfer.
