    Multiply the given dimensions by 56!.....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I don't really think there was a standard size, but the ones i have seen have been about 4 1/2 feet square and about 7 1/2 feet to the apex, that model is pretty much out of scale!....

    So really better described as "Foxtrot Uniform" rather than "Foxtrot Charlie" as per the link, with "Uniform" standing for "Useless" and "Foxtrot" as.....

    Indeed the size there is definitely not good....
    I have some pictures of one, but unfortunately no dimensions.... however I do think the proportions on this one are better ....

    Here is very accurate info from Wim on the SA version. Maybe this would help you in your project:
