I think it would look even better with a matt black smoke box.

Mountain Goat is an unknown quantity at this point

That really looks the part. It looks more like an expensive kit built locomotive then a Lima ready to run model. Lima did get the proportions of the locomotive right, but them messed up on the colours (Wrong green shade with yellow instead of Gold for the lining. They could have been working from a bright summers photo, and fair play as they were not a British company so did their best at the time). Hornby mesed up a little with the boiler but they did get the colour spot on.
