Does anyone have a photo of a very early HP 85052B 3.5 mm calibration kit they could share? 

I recently bought from Agilent the foam insert for an 85052B 3.5 mm calibration kit. I puchased this with the intent of replacing the foam from an old HP 85052B cal kit I'd bought. 

Unfortunately, the design of the 85052B calibration kit has changed over the years (despite Agilent UK telling me different), so the HP parts don't fit the foam I bought from Agilent. See the attached picture, where I've just shown the bits which cause the problem

* Old HP sliding loads are longer than the space allowed for them in the new Agilent foam.
* Old HP connector gages are smaller than the new Agilent ones. 

Given the Agilent foam does not fit the components I have, I'm left with no option but to make up the foam myself. 

I'd prefer to follow the original HP layout if I can, but would need a photo to do this. Does anyone have one they can share?
