Default Size/Dimensons for scratch-built models?

I'm a cheapskate, plain and simple. When possible, I like to scratch-build vehicle/super-heavy/specialty models because, IMO, prices for most of these models are ridiculous. I don't play tournaments, so I'm not worried about having all entirely "official" GW/Forgeworld models.

I do however want to make sure that my models actually have the features needed to represent the model, and I want them to be the proper size as far as base, height/width , etc.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where to find the actual base sizes and dimensions for the larger 40k models? I Don't see them listed on the GW/Forgeworld sites, but I understand there may be some book or forum that I haven't noticed yet. Any helpful suggestions are appreciated!
