regarding the colours, I was very friendly with Peter Dimberline, and Peter Henshaw, both where original members of what was the Fireboat website, I was not far behind them!. PD knew someone that served on one of these boats, and between the 3 of them, they found the original Vosper plans etc, one of which had the paint codes.
BS639 was the deck colour, but the cabin sides was a darker grey, I dont have the code to hand at the mo. PH painted his boat this way, and it just didn't look right. I painted my 3 foot and 4 foot using BS639, but we reckon over time the correct shade was lost as time went on, you can see whilst its the correct code, it looks a bit green. I went to great lengths to get things right, but we can all use a bit of modelers license to create what we want. There where only two of these boats, they where not mass produced, it was infact a failed project as they arrived too late. The flying boats they where supposed to support where pretty much at the end of their useage
