Original text on model:
"[Unreadable. Appears to be a 7-8 letter word starting with Capital "J" or "F"]." (Source: Original handwritten annotation on model. Undated.)
"Possibly newly identified model. Compare models 3 (#400s Consuelo), 1103 and 1203. Models 1103 and 1203 may well be preliminary models for #400s Consuelo. The smaller scale (1:24) of model 1103 would then suggest it to have been the first model, with 1203 being the second and model 3 being the final model." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. March 28, 2009.)
