Hi


Looks like a Fairmile D hull in 1/24 scale if that helps.

It's deffo a Fairmile D "dog boat".  Check out "Allied Coastal Forces of World War II: Fairmile Designs and Us Submarine Chasers"  by John Lambert and Al Ross or "Conway's Anatomy of the Ship; Fairmile D" by John Lambert.  The two best references on the type.  PM me if you have trouble finding them, but you should be able to get them through your local library (if you still have one).

I think Deans did a kit and Christian at MTB Hulls does a hull.
