Like Mark said, the only problem I see is the identification of the size needed. I can figure out height, but diameter might be problematic. He might have some pre-identified sizes and sell them as sets. Like a 350 scale Hood, Bismarck and the like.

Hi,

The masts are generic. They are not made for specific kits.
It is only necessary to measure the length of the plastic parts you want to replace
and to choose the mast with the corresponding length. The diameter of
the brass parts is 2-3 times smaller than the plastic parts and
therefore much nearer to scale.
