If it is about 24" long it is the old HFM Pilot Boat. Very nice kit and yours appears to have been super detailed as well.

Many thanks guys, I was tipping Lesro myself, but the length IS @24" so it may well be HFM...  8) I'll do a bit more research(surfing that is..!) and see what turns up...

It is a fleabay find, and well worth the trip to Scarborough to pick it up...  :-))

TOP WORK FELLAS... it is indeed a HFM marine pilot boat...
597mm length
187mm beam

A web page from "Jotika" has a pdf catalogue and this model is on there but I am unable to copy the pic or add a linky, spoilsports..!
 The boat shown in the catalogue is rather devoid of detail but is unmistakebly the right one... so, many thanks for your help and on with the resto!! yay!!
