Thanks Marshall
Since I posted the questions I found a manual for free download - the Nooky 
is shown as an ekstra option in the back - the tubes are not - any way I 
downloded it page pr page and have printed them out and glued them together. 
The picture I posted was of the lot I bought taken by the place that sold 
it - I will eventually take a picture of all the gear lined up with much 
more affection - I found that I enjoy holding the camera even more then my 
M6 - look foreward to see the first results when I get the film back from 
the lab - all the best Ruben
