Fun and enjoyableKeeping brain engaged, Enjoy the fun of assembling
This was my first build and I took my time with it, the build stretched across 3 days but I enjoyed it.
I really enjoyed building this and the instructions are very clear. The only thing that isn't obvious is the precise angle that some parts need to be at before you completely tighten them, and it isn't always possible to reach the screws later when they need to be adjusted. Adding some rubber washers (not included) might help keep the teeth tight and pointing in the right direction as they are easy to accidentally loosen later on. The YouTube video came to my rescue 3 or 4 times, but overall it was easier than expected and the end result looks fabulous on my mantelpiece. (I made my own fins out of some spare black leather using the supplied pieces as a template)
The mouth was pretty difficult to Do and you dont have that many Room to Do it. I also had problems to some pieces in a certain position because they were blocked by other pieces but it was a really fun build overall !
If you are in to assembling a very complicated, time consuming, but rewarding puzzle, here it is. Hundreds of screws, washers, gears, metal pieces, etc. All of the part come in well labeled bags. Every step clearly indicates what parts are needed. I'd suggest keeping all parts in their original bags with the part number labeled on them. Grabbing the wrong length screw can make things difficult. Comes with necessary screw drivers and plyers. You may find tweezers or hemostats useful. Many times, there is simply not enough space to hold a nut with your fingers. Prepare to get frustrated at times because of this. The instruction book is similar to a Lego book, showing step-by-step assembly. I've given this a 4-star rating instead of five because of two things. First - the light will not work as given. There is no insulation in the barrel that holds three AG1 batteries, essentially causing a short between them. I solved by coating the wall of the holder with a thin coat of polyurethane. The 0-ring spacer used as a spring to allow turning the light on and off, is too thick. I used a different item. Second - the instruction book shows very nice drawings. But they are small. This is fine as long as you are building sub-assemblies. But as the assembly gets larger, the pictures remain the same small size and it is very very difficult to see exactly where or how something is fastened. In one step, I spent nearly 30 minutes viewing online videos to figure out proper attachment. In the end, you will end up with a very heavy, very neat looking fish. Highly recommended.
