I need to increase the content (not much as it needs to stay a succinct message of course) but to increase the length of the content box but that will somehow, enable me to enter new further content / message - so I'm thinking I will only achieve this by making the content box an increased height but that box vertically scrollable... again, not an ideal way to go but it is what it is, with what I need to achieve / play about with.
using custom CSS you could make whole #soonWrapper heigher. Just do not forget also to reposition (margin-top) AcyMailing element. Or, if you want to use scrolling, just set the height if #soonText element, and use css overflow-y: hidden.
Finally, if you want to completely redesign the coming soon page, you could use Custom file option, and write your own HTML / CSS solution.
Thanks for the guidance. However, seeing it in place I'm wondering if it's possible to have the increased heigh soonText box but actually get the browser page to scroll, as opposed to scrolling within the soonText box itself... would this be possible at all? See here now.

yes, why not. Using custom CSS or Custom file you can do almost anything. You will just need to change the positioning of #soonWrapper from absolute to relative, set its dimensions and margins and remove the overflow: hidden on body element.
Or just create your own soon.php file, and use any design you like.
you will have to use Custom file option. Just create some directory (for example soon) in your Joomla installation. Place there files of your soon template. As you will propably need to make some chnges to the template, to make it dynamic, I would recommend to rename index.html to index.php.
In n3t Coming Soon settings go to Display settings page and in field Custom file put /soon/index.php
After that you will have to modify your template to work as you need. For inspiration of how AcyMailing and other dynamic properties are displayed see /media/plg_n3tcomingsoon/soon.php
