    Just finished the General purpose factory 2 build. It was an easy build and simply followed my directions.

    First was printing templates, cutting them out, and using rubber cement, glued to the styrene.

      Cutting window openings is up to you. You may eliminate any you want, or add some. Builders choice.

      See the Sketch set :
