Lafayette HE-45 Pictures?

I already forgot who really was looking for the Lafayette HE-45 picture.
But, anyway, there were 3 models, HE-45, 45A, 45B. All three had minor
improvements over each other. All were patterned after the physical and
circuit design of the Lafayette CB HE-20/A/B/C Series and were all tube
rigs. If you join the lafayetteradiocollectorsclub up on YahooGroups, and
go to photos, you will see photos of the HE-45A and B. There is a picture
of the HE-50 there which is the 10 meter version of the HE-45, so
physically they look the same. The 45 series were not stellar performers.
If you were lucky, you could also sometimes listen to strong AM broadcast
stations while tuning the 6 meter band. But they were American made,
mostly by Bendix and one other company, whose name escapes me at the
moment. The Lafayette HA-460, made by Trio, ran rings around the HE-45.
