Please check the thread mentioned before, there are many pages of it I am afraid.  Photos include details of the various lifting cranes.  The upper mast I had to scale from photos as the Admiralty plan cuts it off just above the funnel.  I would check the funnel height and top detail too as this has also been truncated on the plans.

PS:  If you wish to continue with the same themed thread just hit 'reply' rather than starting a new topic.
