From UK,
T.K.3 :single seat low wing light aircraft,contributed to Chilton as D.W.1.
T.K.6 :single seat racer monoplane,was developed from ealier T.K.2.
Martin-Baker MB-4 :was MB-3 airframe powered by Rolls-Royce Griffon engine
as a single seat fighter,project only.
Martin-Baker MB-6 :was a single seat turbojet powered delta-wing tailless fighter,
project only.

MB-4 never built. The sabre-engined MB-3 was to have had a merlin, but Martin, as ever, couldn't make a simple substitution, and after the MB-3 crashed, he redesigned it to become the MB-5.
The jet delta was not the MB-6. See attached pictures. The MB-6 was one of his late war designs, see "Sir James Martin the authorized biography of the Martin-Baker ejection seat pioneer" by Sarah Sharman, edited by Patrick Stephens Limited. My copy still packed. I'm getting tired of having to say this!

I remember the question in Air Enthusiast which produced the drawing I posted. I had the wind tunnel model(?) picture, but nothing else ever appeared. I hope I'm wrong now!

Re: The first post from Hesham about specification T1/37 :

Percival P.20 two seat trainer designed for Air Min Spec T.1/37.

Four companies submitted bids for the tender, apart from Pervival:
Heston
Airspeed AS.36
Parnall Type 382
Miles M.15

Only the Parnall and Miles aircraft were constructed. Neither were considered to meet the specification.

Image of the Percival example in model form attached from the Norman Ellison book.
