    There are side elevation diagrams in Rakov (Russian p 270, but better in the German translation version p188) for the locomotive only, but by far the best plan

      There are side elevation diagrams in Rakov (Russian p 270, but better
      in the German translation version p188) for the locomotive only, but by
      far the best plan is in "Lokomotiv-Athleten" (Giesl-Gieslingen, pub
      Slezak), which also shows the tender and gives dimensions in imperial
      measurements. The latter publication also has two rather poor
      photographs of the beast.

      Note that the middle three driving axles had flangeless wheels and
      there was some side play in the other axles and coupling rods.
      Whether a model could negiotiate metre-radius curves is another matter!
