Martin used torpedo halves from Airfix 1/72nd Beaufighter (Old tooling), but only had enough for 2 Pursuit ships. The 3rd used parts from Airfix's E-boat (this is the surviving pursuit ship owned by Mat Irvine - I think?), as stated earlier Martin didn't quite have enough parts to detail all 3 models identically (Martin built these as a favour to Ian Scoones during off days while supervising 'The Medusa Touch').
Lets face it 35 for the E-Boat against 3.99 for a Beaufighter from secondhand market?
One thing to keep in-mind is that the Pursuit ships were painted in 'Holts Red Oxide' with Black detailing and shaded panels using powder-paint.
The various Red shades, metallic colour detailing and letraset striping was added by Ian's team at the BBC prior to shooting.

Looking forward to seeing the rest of the build as well. I've got 2 Titan Find kits, but I'd love to simply produce an actual replica from the actual parts used for the screen version.

Terrific work identifying the sections and sharing the build.
