Default HobbyKing SPAD - wood/fiberglass version HELP!

Just bought this kit, "as is", at a estate sale. This one is HK's SPAD kit with wood parts, preformed fiberglass fuse, wings, tail feathers, all in camouflage colors with red nose. The kit is NOT the other HK SPAD, which is foam and yellowish/tan in color. The kit I bought has no assembly/instruction manual with it. Yes, I know I was stupid to buy it without the instructions. But I am hoping someone out there in RC world has built this kit already, still has their instruction manual hanging around, and I could either borrow it or pay a reasonable fee for it. I ask this because, so far, I have had only silence from HK's support center. Can anyone HELP? Thanks

Pictures of parts... I can probably figure it out. I've dealt with a lot of planes with useless or no instructions.

fhhuber: Thanks very much for your offer to help. HK has finally responded. Let's wait until next week to see what happens.

fhhuber: HK found the manual & just emailed it to me. Turns out that the HK kit is a copy of the Great Planes Electrify SPAD XIII! Stupid me didn't know these vendors did this kind of stuff. Or should it be "naive me"? Thanks again for your offer to help. Bill
