DFW Staaub plans

Does anyone know if any drawings or plans exist of the DFW Taub from 1913/14 from the pictures in the Jack Herris' Aeronaut DFW volume it would appear the plane was similar in shape to Jeannin Stahltaub with a number of notable differences.

I believe from Hannes Täger in 'Flugplatz Grossenhain' that the first plane used by the Sachsen Flieger Abteilung was DFW Taub A.184/13.

'In der Zeitung wurd das Flugzeug als bei den DFW in Leipzigproduzierte Mars-Taube mit der Number 184.13 bezeichnet.'

I am interested in the site of the radiator for this plane as the Aeronaut DFW volume on page 16 has pictures of Military Taube A.5/14 with the distinctive 'throat' mounted radiator, but the bottom picture of the crashed183/13 on page 17 appears to show a side mounted radiator beneath the wing.

Thanks for any help

Looking at the image it would appear to be a Windhoff radiator, Nr.6. Not 100% but the best match I could find. They also have a larger version as well Nr.7.
