From what I remember reading in the various press releases from Bachmann, the prototype really was a one off and Bachmann created a completely new model. This suggests you may be restricted to a "memoir" rather than a "biography" if you see what I mean.

The simplest practical basis for a representation of the prototype Deltic would be the Bachmann N gauge model of the production version. As David suggests that does restrict you to a memoir, as the prototype was a little shorter than the production version. The major distinguishing features were the nose profile with the centre head light and speed whiskers, the porthole windows in the doors, the bodyside stripes, and the different arrangement of radiator grilles. The last would be tricky,and hard to accomplish neatly in N, but the first three should be more straightforward, and immediately suggestive of the character of the prototype.
