Dave: This, as you know, is/was a free model  from the Cdn Forces  (Maritime Command) website. I hope that this is still available online.   It was (and still is) the standard training vessel for the CF (MC) Reserve  out here on the Left Coast. Both my nephew in law and his wife trained on ships of this kind.  Superdetailed up to 1:72, this would make a superb presentation model for a naval reserve mess, etc.

A build renumbered for HMCS Whitehorse for the folks at the Legion.  Still lots of room for little boxes, etc for more detail if desired.

John

Ooh, that looks like a very nice build.

This is just a repaint, right John?
You switched the Hull numbers.
Its not another model we can download.
Did you make any other changes?

The original model is very nice but lacks some realistic textures and artwork.
With a bit more work, it could be very realistic looking.
I wonder why they used a model designed by a Japanese designer, and not a Canadian one?

Thanks, Dave.  Yes, just a renumber and some extra layering and rounding of things.  A wonderful structure starting point for someone with more time and knowledge of the equipment.

John
