Default 3D CAD models for steam gauges?

Does anyone have access to 3D CAD models of the UMA steam flight instruments Vans sells? Specifically looking for the 3-1/8 airspeed and altimeter.

I created some generic 3-1/8 and 2-1/4 instruments, based on the MGL instruments. If you check the body lengths they may be adjustable for your needs or at least close enough? Done in Solidworks a few versions ago so probably usable on any new-ish version.

Rob, Id very much like to have a look at those gauge models. They will probably get me 90% of the way! Anywhere I can download them?
