The instructions are in the video below. This creation takes about in-between 1,000 and 1,500 pieces and took about four hours to build. Please vote up in the contest my brother and I would really appreciate it. Sorry but I didn't make a parts list if you have questions post a comment. I will also be posting photos that you can study for reference. I hope that you find my instructions easy to understand. Please vote up in the "rods and connectors contest "!
