Euro Reef Dimensions?

I am going to build a DIY skimmer and am starting with the basics. I have become in love with the Needle type skimmers - especially the Euro Reef. I was wondering if anyone out there could give a little input with the dimensions/measurements of these skimmers. I would like to build an equivalent to the RS5-3 or CS5-3 but all I could find so far is the "footprint" 9"x9", Height 24", and diameter 5"

Reaction chamber diameter? (I assume 5”)
Reaction chamber height up to the bottom of the union?
Collection cup diameter (I assume 5”) /height
Riser tube diameter/height inside the collection cup from top of the union
Diameter of the output tube
Any info would be greatly appreciated!

I will be using the basic venturi design originally posted by "DON W from Reef Frontieres" and his DIY Needle Impeller
