Hi Dragzz - I'm in the middle of building one of these myself, been working on it sporadically for the past 6 months. It's not a particularly difficult build, but there are some challenges to it. Instructions are pretty sparse, but pictures in the manual are good. Just take it one step at a time and have fun with it.

Darn, I thought that I posted here earlier.  Nonetheless...great to see you working on a project, dragzz.  That is a lovely paddlewheeler!  I tried to build it many, many years ago but failed miserably.  I can see that you will have better success than I did.  Enjoy the journey!
