Thoughts


These last couple of issues went by really fast as there was only one part to attach. The Motor Cable and Infrared Cable from this issue will be used again in Issue 30 so keep them safe for now. The only part in this issue, the Dome Frame, is plastic.

Running Total of screws used so far: 99
