    one tip for this step. for pictures 6 and 7 make a note saying to build each of these seperatly. this is because when I build this I made pic no.6 then added on to that in number 7. then when I got to picture 12 I realized That 6 and 7 are different pieces.
    but overall, great instructable and knex man is proudly standing in my bedroom
