Very satisfying build May 5, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Boston, MA United States  
I am surprised there aren't more reviews for this product. I don't typically add my 2 cents but decided to do so since I really enjoyed assembling the kit..

First up, this is a fairly accurate replica of the original kinetic scuplpture. The Japanese instructions are a touch tough to decode but it only adds to the satisfaction of completing the build. Anybody who tries can proceed with the full confidence that the instructions will get you there eventually.

I had to tinker with the connectors to the crankshaft because they were a little sticky, but other than that it was a smooth build.

I am a newbie at these things so it took me 2.5-3 hrs from start to finish. I think this is a pretty cool product and definitely worth the price.
