If you can't find anything with dimensions, I don't think it would hurt to buy a quality HO scale model and a set of cheap machinist calipers, and start scaling it up. That's what I did for my Baldwin S-12 I'm working on, plus I used what few dimensions/drawings I could find online as "check" dimensions.
In my case our local train show provided a $10.00 Athearn Blue Box S-12, it was right on except the hood width was wider to fit the electric motor, and it turned out to be a blessing because my Honda GX390 and hydraulic drive setup will just barely fit.
