Any scale modellers here? Need an advice on Italian Zara class

Hi, everyone. New Year goals included getting back to scale models after 15 years, so I decided to start with something relatively cheap. It is a Hobby Boss 1/350 Pola cruiser. It is rather poorly detailed so many things are to be created from scratch or improved. 

Among these are the fore and main mast struts.

Does anyone know the actual diameter of those on the real Zara class? :cap_look:

There were nice modeller blueprints from Profile Morskie https://www.super-hobby.co.uk/products/Wloski-ciezki-krazownik-POLA.html I'm think they are also obtinable on page of publisher. 

 

Pola by Trumpeter is very poor kit.  Their new Zara although much more expensive is much better kit with uncomparable quality to this old Pola kit but I understand it's returning to hobby kit so it's ok.

Thanks. I think I will have to buy that blueprint as this model is indeed very poorly detailed. Except for things that are out of proportion there is stuff that is milssing commpletely (like a bow hatches for the floatplanes)
