Wondering if I can use the northstar 110cm serchlight for Graf spee main searchlight.

Is that the right size for Graf spee?

157cm kriegsmarine serchlight from veteran doesn't look right for Graf spee.

If northstar product doesn't match, please recommend the proper after market product if any.

Thanks.

What scale are you working in? If 1/350 I believe the searchlight should be 5mm across the lense. the actual size in 1:1 would be around 175cm.

Northstar 1/350 german 110cm searchlights are indeed what you need ! By the way, Northstar does nice paravanes also. Those inbox are hugly !!
And the twin 37mm mounts (x4) included are just a joke : they seem to be in 1/700 in lieu of 1/350 strangely...
