As seen I have done the Fairmile D MTB, and the 73 foot Vosper MTB.

It was pointed out that there are plenty of other MTB/MGB boats still to be drawn, Fairmile A / B / C types, Vosper 70 foot, and the post-war, Bold, Gay, Dark types.

Novice asked about 4.5" coastal forces guns. The only class I could find with that was the Bold class.

Bombhead has done a very nice FD scale Brave class.

A couple of MGB boats that will probably be enough to be able to do an SB scale drawing.

If anybody has some nice line drawings we can resize and colour in, it would be much appreciated.

I like those Eswube, they fill in a few gaps if renamed in their original UK classes.

Though I would note that in the storyline you have one of them as BPB 72 foot, while on the drawing you have them as BPB 70 foot.

Can you or I have a look at putting them into an 'English Channel Combatants' thread (the name would allow for German entries as well) - renaming some of them to the British types, while keeping them in their Polish names as well. Or figure out another name to allow them all. I remember seeing a 'small ships' thread which possibly these should go in.

@Krakatoa
These linked are already in the Polish folder of the archive and are meant to represent the particular boats used by Polish Navy in Great Britain. Feel free to do any adaptations of them in the Royal Navy or other navies.

As for the BPB 72ft/70ft - that's how it was in my sources. I had no reason to doubt them, especially since the overall looks seemed right as well.
