Ben, I have studied the photographs I have and on at least two it shows the mast framework as being
triangular two main struts at the front and one at the after side of the mast it also shows the mast as
having a kink in the framework below the radar platform - as the mast is raked back the kink brings the
radar platform back to level otherwise the surface radar would be scanning the skies - also the funnels are
more oval  perhaps egg shaped in plan wiith the broad end forward as I said on your other post I will
try the get them scanned in in a few days as they are very hard to describe. In relation to the mast
the other photos are a bit ambiguous owing to angle they were taken
