Climax radio - Schematic? Model#?

The small radio sitting on top of 'Master' brand says Climax on decal but has no model#. Tubes (assuming they are correct) are 6D6, 6J7, L-55-B, 25L6, 25Z5.
Looking for a model number and schematic link, as I want to get it running, as well as my other woodies pictured.

Sounds like a modified AA5.

It does look similar to this;

http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/climax_unknown3.html

Climax was in Chicago and made some very deco stylish cabinets and dials. And they did sell to other badges. The "angry dial" is there most memorable design. I have a largish tabletop with the "angry dial" which has no ID anywhere but long searching brought me to Climax. I forget the model # I found. You have a winner.

The speaker may very well be desirable, I can't tell exactly which model it is but some of those are impressive speakers.

As for the radio, it's a predecessor to the AA5, you don't necessarily need a schematic to get it going. take a couple photos (too and bottom of chassis) for more specific advice. It looks fairly crudely made (although very cool), so a schematic may be hard to come by.

That L-55-B reminds me of a ballast tube number??

Not an AA5, with only 4 tubes and a ballast. Climax Radio and Television made a bunch of sets with this basic lineup, can you tell if it is a TRF set, or does it have an IF transformer? Models 7, 10, 12 30, D-1 Duke D14 Garnet have an earlier version of that lineup.
