RCAF RAAF C-130E/H CPI installation

I wrenched on RCAF CC-130E/H’s in the late 70’s and 1980 at CFB Namao AB. I chucked my stack of Herk manuals many years ago, silly me! What I am looking for, is any closer photos or a drawing of the CPI used by some Herk operators in the 70’s and 80’s. It was flush mounted on top of the “beaver tail” aft of the rudder, it was rectangular with two small winglets that were visible from certain angles viewed from the ground. The Canadian ones were originally international orange during my stint, and later painted in fluorescent red. The Australian ones were apparently white. I have some distant photos showing it in place, however I am building a scale model from the new 1/72 Zvezda C-130H kit and need to scratch build one. Any help would be much appreciated.

Take care and stay safe
Best regards
Jeff :)
