How about using the triple light unit that is with the Monogram Mack Snap Kit? Use a piece of aluminum tubing for the pole.
Check with Shapeways also. They might have a sample quartz light that is 3D printed. Also check here in the Parts Bin for Shapeways products that Matt Leese has done for fire apparatus models.

2 methods for telescoping mast for the Scene light
matching Aluminum tubes, next smaller than previous
2-3-4 sections

Second an Old TV/Radio antenna of the approximate diameter and length
I am using that method for the water way on my Stalled MACK CF Aerialscope project!!!
Larger diameter matches the Evergreen/Plastruct 1/4 Tubing/elbows at the turntable
upper section matches the smaller 1/8-3/16 at basket.
