Default Which model: Marconiphone Tape Deck

I have bought a tape deck on ebay which identifies itself as Marconiphone, but as it has been thoughtfully painted black at some point there are no other marks.
I have successfully restored the mechanicals, but the volume control is now u/s. Sound is at maximum on record and playback and the control is inoperative.

Any help would be appreciated, but first, perhaps, to identify the model from the attached photos.

Many thanks.

If you are searching for a schematic for this, do be aware that there are liable to be ULTRA and FERGUSON badged versions of this.
