    Nothing special and just PLA.
    If you wanted to send me dimensions I could make the parts for the Florida : )

    So with the '20s Sodaks being legal for IRCWCC , now, I'm building some cage masts for them.
    This would also work on Commodore's Colorado class ships, in their WW1 configurations.
    I need to finish up the search light platform and some other details but, here's the basic shape.
