Default Warp Models Eagle instructions

Hi, I bought (years ago) a warp models 1999 eagle with some turned aluminium engine bells. Well, its been stuck in a cupboard for about 5 years unassembled. The included instructions are so poor as to be next to useless.
Before I list the kit on ebay, I would like to have one last pop at deciphering the "instructions". I feel sure there must be better ones out there. Does anyone know of a better set of instructions for this model???
Thanks for any assistance...

Try a message to this guy on ebay, I think he is the one who makes the kits! Ask for updated instructions!

Thank you. I will mail him.
However, the other night, after ethanol based refreshment I sat down, with the model and found (on this forum) a post by a guy who had had the sense to post close up images so I had a reference, and last night I was able to assemble the front pod. Half the issue is working out which pieces are flash and which are the metal pieces. the amount of filing I have had to do is astonishing.... I will say, if I ever do finish it (and I have made more progress in the last 4 days than I have in the last 5 years!!!) it will sit pride of place somewhere...

The flash on the white metal parts in the more recent kits is pretty horrendous, its what has put me off for the last couple of years and I'm not easily daunted by kits!!!

To be fair, Warp kits are for experienced builders only, so the instructions are more of a guide than a list of A-B's (no pun intended).
