RCA 44B / 44BX owners - dimensions?

I may be a little crazy, but I'm thinking a fun winter/spring project for my shop may be to fashion a RCA 44 series mic (of sorts).

What I'm wondering: would a 44 owner be kind enough to give me reasonably accurate (within an 1/8th of an inch) dimension of the mic - overall height, overall width? Looking for the main body, so NOT including the mounting studs, yoke, etc.

If I have that, I figure I can scale off photographs.

Thanks, Joe

Go find a 3D model of the mic and take the measurement from the model.
Start searching. I found this in 2 min.

I'm planning something like this in an MXL body that's similar looking. My plan is to use a Bumblebee ribbon motor and a Cinemag transformer.

I too had found this link. However, the models are a bit crude, and I question the scale - hence asking a 44BX owner to do me the favor of a reasonable measurement.

Your 3D suggestion did lead me to this, which is very cool, and will help.
