Hello 'steviej' Welcome aboard.

From what I see in your picture, this looks like a model of a Vosper craft that were built in the early '60's and exported to several navies. Malaysia had 14 that they named the 'Kris' class. To quote from 'Janes' 1970 - Main Engines 2 x Bristol Siddeley/ Maybach diesels of 3,500hp each, speed 26 knts. loa 103ft Beam 19ft-8ins. Displacement 96tons standard.
