Since I believe you have given me the go signal to post an answer,
I'll post what I've found now. First I gathered a list of custom model
ship makers, those that could build a commissioned topic. They will
take long though. I included the conditions of the first site just to
give an idea. Typically, a commissioned model ship would start at
$300, minus shipping.
After that I included other custom ship builders, but seem limited in
their topics. I included them anyway in case you might want to try
them and could get a special accommodation.
I also included painters who could possibly do a painting of the
Warrior. Just show them photographs on the Internet maybe, or order
one and send it to them, so they could make a painting. I'm afraid
there are no ready made paintings of the HMCS Warrior, even in its
other stints like the one in Argentina.
This is all for now, I hope the results will help you.

I separated these since they seem not able to make the Warrior, for
different reasons. Try to inquire though if they can accommodate you.
