Have acquired some more material on the boats in all four configurations and have started drawing. Here's a poorly stitched profile of the original MRB-2 as it is at the moment:

One of the more interesting things I've learned is that the Finnish boats were to have the Italian pneumatic side launchers for the torpedoes. A number of the Finnish MTBs were built to the Baglietto design for the MAS 500 series boats; others, like the TAISTO design also carried the side launchers.
