Looking for 3d models of current Australian Naval Craft

I hope somebody can help me,
I am a 3D graphic designer and I have been asked by a client to create some graphics depicting contemporary Australian Naval assets.
I have a Collins Class sub and a wedge tail surveilance aircraft already but I am having real trouble finding any models of other craft used by the Australian navy. I have been around the web and collected pictures of many of the craft in service and others currently being built, however, I will be here until next year modelling these items from scratch.
Does anybody have or know of a source where I can find models such as a Hobart Class or Canberra Class?
I am looking foer pretty much anything I can find at this point.
Thanks to any one who can help.

This might be helpful to you. One of our users here made quite an amazing 3D Armidale model a while back.

As far as finding other models go. There's quite a few photos, graphics, etc. on the internet that might be helpful to get you headed in the right direction. Keep in mind the Hobarts are based on a Spanish design, so you might want to look for info on the F100s as well.

What other ships are you modelling? How accurate do you need the models to be?

I would recomend visiting this webpage

www dot jasonslipways dot com

It's the webpage of a Vehicle Simulator modding site. It's held by Jason Simpson and has a lot of RAN ship models.

Currently it has a couple good models from:
HMAS Camberra
HMAS kanimbla
HMAS ANZAC
HMAS Westralia
HMAS Success
HMAS Fremantle
HMAS Sheean
HMAS Perth with the ASMD upgrade
HMAS Brunei
HMAS Yarra
And the new LCM1-Es that the RAN is buying for the new LHD.

Even if you can't get permission to use his models (he's a very understanding dude, I got permission to use a couple of models some months ago) take a look at "vehicle simulator".
It's a very complete simulator even if the graphics are not at the actual level.

Yes Jason is a very talented 3D designer, has done many 'official' models.
His RAN models are highly realistic and painstakingly constructed in most cases.

He is also a super nice fella and my brother in law :)
