Google "Vanguard Model Marine" and/or "The Hobby Centre"+Ottawa.  They have a 1/72 scale River Class set of drawings (if you want to scratch build).  I have builders drawings for Prestonian Class which I can get copied for cost plus postage at your preferred scale.  send me a PM and I'll describe what I have.

Cheers

Greetings Frodo

I served on a Prestonain class frigate HMCS Beacon Hill,  1964-76 built a 1/48 scale model of her five years ago and still have the GA drawings..

The GRP hull at 1/72 scale is just now available from Jonathan Evans living in Bradford Ontario...
he is a superb craftsman and used my GA drawinghs to create the mould..
