George, consider, a chimney is more than just a straight cylinder. There is usually a taper commensurate to height, a foundation of sorts and in early 1900's some fancy brick work. Plus they emit smoke.
Well, I got this from Harry Hieki that is all the above and quite reasonable. 856 625 5506
It is 20" tall which IMO is a realistic height and will not over power the layout.
I appreciate your post, but I am replicating this situation (below). This is the Weirton Steel Open Hearth. It had 14 ovens and all stacks were metal and straight (as far as I can tell).
I am aware of Hieke's work and it is gorgeous. However, it's not what I'm looking for. And the last time I saw one of his stacks at York it was $400. Ouch. I think it was very heavily weathered.
Anyway, I appreciate your effort.
