Need Schematic and Info on RCA A-203A/SR Receiver

I picked up an RCA A-203A/SR Receiver and a pretty awful (the price was 
right) looking but appears to be complete AR-77 at the Williams Arizona 
hamfest on Friday.

No problem finding info on the AR-77 but have found nothing on the RCA 
A-203A/SR Receiver other than a mention in the Osterman book. This one 
is complete except missing the dial cover and dial scale. From the 
picture in the book looks to be a fragile plastic easily broken and 
easily lost dial. The pointer is still there. The radio appears complete 
in all other aspects however it has been painted silver. Why did people 
do these things? When I got my Breting 12, it had been painted blue.

Anyway, I am looking for a schematic or manual or any other 
documentation on the RCA A-203A/SR Receiver. Does anybody have one that 
has the original dial that they might be able to take a photo of and 
e-mail me. Also, what was the original color before it was "silver plated?"

Also looking for any comments, positive or negative on this receiver.

Tnx and 73,
