Model identification:
"Newly identified model. Compare models 1405, 1434 and 1421. Model 1421 probably was the preliminary model for what was finalized in model 1434 --- a 30kn 198ft torpedo boat. Model 1405 shares certain similarities with models 1434 and 1421 but appears to have been made for a slightly longer vessel." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
