Heya, this is the very first time that i'm posting a Real Design here and the Final Result pleased me a bit, perhaps there's a lot of details missing mainly because her size didn't allow me to drawn them and the lack of sources also.
The Fairmile A Motor launchs didn't face significant events during the War and was refited several times. The only thing that i assume as "relevant" is its devlopment story and just it.

I did It with a certain dificulty and i'll try to find new Sources and images to spot things that i missed here ^^

I found this on the White Ensign Models site. They have drawings for all the Fairmile marques, A, B, C, and D. I got the details for the 'D' type drawing I did from this site. Some of the model sites are excellent for picking up details you can include on your drawings.

From looking from the WEM drawing to your drawing it looks like that is the drawing you scaled your one from. I can't see any more details that you could have added in.
The only thing I might have done differently is to use the guns off the RN parts sheet. Tip: the gun on the bow should be horizontal. Its an SB thing.

This looks good. Drawing small boats is always difficult when it comes to detailing.
I think you've done a good job.

I think the bow MG should be left as 45 degrees as only being a single-pixel line its not going to stand out if horizontal.

First I was about to write:
"Nice work, only the aft gun looks like it's floating in the air, unless there's some tarpaulin (or similar) hanging on the railings and covering the gun's base. "

But then I made a closer look:

And would say that at this moment it doesn't qualify as anything more than a very-early-stage-WIP. :(
Besides the artifacts, many of the "details" seem to be simply a leftover of the source drawing
