My most recent build, is the Iron Shipwrights USS Ainsworth, built as the USS Alywin, FF-1081. The kit was built for a friend whose brother served on board the Alywin. The model will be presented to my friends brother on his birthday this year. The Alywin served the US Navy from 1971 until 1992 when she was decommissioned and leased to Taiwan, where she was renamed Ning Yang, FF-938. The kit was very well cast and Jon at Iron Shipwrights was a dream to deal with when I found parts missing from the kit. His rapid response to emails and parts replacement is to be commended and was greatly appreciated.
