Dimensions of Red Alert Indicator?

I've been working on a 3d model of the bridge of the original series Enterprise.

I have most of the basic shapes laid out - To the point where I'm far enough along to start thinking about some of the details.

But one of the problems I've run into is that I can't find any info on the dimensions of the "Alert" indicator used on the bridge (and many other sets!).

Using this image and a bit of math, and based on Feek's reference image showing that the wall communicator has a width of 9 3/4 inches, I've come up with a height of 11.89 inches.  If I round up to 12 inches, based on the proportions I assume that the width is 7 inches, and that there is a 1/2 inch bezel on the border surrounding the lighted surface.

I've tried to cross-check this against by using the McMaster blueprints, but that just gives me wildly different results.

Does anyone have any info?
