Can someone give me a quick hand putting this circuit together? Answered

I've begun to try to put together this circuit myself. I have all the parts, but I'm horrible at reading schemas. I've failed 4 times now, and only managed to get a little movement from the motor once. I've read a couple tutorials on reading schemas, so I know most of the symbols, but actually putting them together is a whole new deal for me. I'm trying to get a photo cell to regulate the power of a motor without starving it of power. Could someone please give me a bit of direction as to how I solder the parts together (i.e. solder resistor to the left lead of the transistor etc.)? Thank you for the help. :)

What components (specifically) have you got in there? L

R1 is a resistor (I'm using a 1K), the "9v" is the battery, the "photocell" is pretty self explanatory, Q1 is a NPN transistor, D1 is a diode, and M is the motor. Sorry about that. :)

Yes, what transistor (alphanumeric id on it), ditto photocell (if it has one). I don't see a problem with it as it is, but it helps to know what you've got. L
