They did full CAD drawings, so if you are serious about a scale model I am sure they would help you.

The orignal H1 is at the National Air and Space museum in Washington DC. I doubt if they have detail drawings, but they might. They have a formal request procedure that's inexpensive or free and they will respond in time with a list of what they have.
