Nope!

Look at the difference between the funnels on the pic and the ones on you model.

Hint: Look at the bow.

South Korean?
ROKS Chungmu?

Getting closer (or a little past going West).

What other nation designed ships with bows like that? Think, McFly!  ;D

At last (with many hints) found it.  Japan, Harukaze, DD

Okay, will probably be an easy one.

A different kind of "Sloop" -- HMS Amethyst (U16 during WW / F116 post-war).

...and 'Simon' the cat, who killed Mao Tse Tung, the big rat, thus saving the provisions of Amethyst from depletion to allow Amethyst to escapt it's blockaded engagement with PLA forces in 1949.

Yes, HT, Stoney is correct.

It is the first HMCS Algonquin (ex- HMS Valentine). Originally she was a V-class destroyer, but then was converted in 1953 into an ASW frigate mostly modelled on the type 15 standards of the RN. It was a home made re-design and she became one of a kind for the rest of her life.

Yes that is correct. I was surprised at the extent of the refit and deck, superstructure changes.

I was actually looking for a pic of a supposedly 'modernization' proposal of a Prestonian class frigate that included a test bed for a VDS.  No joy.

That's because the VDS experiments were carried onboard HMCS CRUSADER, not onboard any Prestonian class frigate.

What you possibly had in mind, for experiments onboard the Prestonian's, was the Helicopter trial onboard HMCS BUCKINGHAM.

Apparently the 2 ships were intimately acquainted http://jproc.ca/r17/peacship.html

SS Mayaguez, and the USS Harold E. Holt alongside in the overhead shot.

And for those youngsters who weren't around when it occurred https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayaguez_incident
