Did you have had a try with the British Military Power Boat Trust?
As far as I remember they hold on their webpage some photographs of it.

Happy modeling, J?rg

I saw your request on the bmpt forum, there was confusion re which Vosper design you were after, the assumption was made that you were after MTB103, an experimental stepped hull short boat from WW2. I now see you are talking about the Fleetscale kit of the 103ft post war export design, like the Sri Kedah. I attach a picture of a magnificent 1/24th scale model of this vessel found on the web.I suggest also you re-try bmpt site as Pioneer the site moderator is something of an expert on these boats and I'm sure he can help you further if you explain the error.
