These accurately sized, shaped and highly detailed models represent the cage masts of Colorado and Tennessee class battleships as they appeared from the late 1930s through December 7th, 1941.

Overall dimensions scaled from official US Navy "Booklet of General Plans: USS West Virginia BB-48" dated November 30, 1939.  Details were adjusted to match high-resolution photos of the actual ship obtained from the National Archives by Mr. Martin J. Quinn.  Features include detailed supporting structure and service catwalks for the mainmast searchlight platform and ship's bell.

Install the mainmast so that the ship's bell is aft.

Mainmast: 116.0 mm
