I tried to research it when I built mine, best I could do was the same squadron. Check out my build thread, I have a few pics there.

There is a couple of pics in his book, but they are not that great. One is a color version of the small pic in the artwork you posted. PM me if you want me to try and scan them. It looks like the profile is pretty accurate, actually.
