I can think of another example of oversized steamers.
The PFM and AHM brass Milwaukee Road 4-6-4 steamers look very much alike. However the AHM's are said to be 10-percent oversized .
While that knowledge might have been better known 40-50 years ago. I think most people don't know that the models are actually that different.
There are a lot more oversized models that most people aren't aware of. Like the S-scale 2-6-0's [Porters] that are sold as HO.
I believe that a project of detailing those model errors would be a welcomed resource for a great many model railroaders.
Best to ya,
