From the posts I've seen on modelboatmayhem.co.uk they are good kits/hulls. There are a couple being built and the progress shown on the MBM site if you have a look. Good value for money by all accounts.

They've got their phone number on their web site Andy so try phoning them , some small scale producers can be difficult to contact by Email and phoning is normally best bet

Not wishing to be pedantic but the SF 33 that "models by design" make is basically their GM 33 model with a bulbous bow.
The full sized SF 33 has 2ft more beam than & 2ft more draught than the GM 33 & is a much bigger boat all round. Really well moulded models though

Just spoke with Andy on the phone, ordered the GM 38. Going to be moulded the right colour which is a bonus. When I get building I shall post some progress reports.
