Konrad Zuse wrote a paper entitled "The Outline of a Computer
Divelopment from Mechanics to Electronics" that was published in 1962
(according to the information I have.) As to the models, he writes
about the development from 1934 to 1945 "In Germany, a series of
machines was developed by the author, which were named Z1, Z2, Z3 and
Z4, as well as two special models."
Further on he writes "The first program-controlled computer which worked
as a complete entity was the German machine Z3 (1941). In the U.S.A.
the first computer was the Harvard Mark I, put to use in 1944."
The book has some construction details for the machines as well as
pictures of the construction of the Z1, the Z4, the Z5 relay computer,
and the Z11 relay computer.
This information comes from "The Origins of Digital Computers."
