The other type is sometimes called a triangulated 4-link, and the arrangement of the links resists sideways movement. It looks like this, but you can use coil-overs instead of separate coil springs and shocks, and the coil-overs can be mounted anywhere there's room, pretty much.
Try this link for many other ways to set one up.
While there is some complex math involved in designing one to work correctly, for a model you only need to decide on the look you want, put stuff where it will fit, and make it look like what's in the 1:1 photos. The links themselves are normally about 1.25" -1.50" diameter, so .050" or .060" styrene round stock looks right.
