Simply brilliant. Is exactly what it says on the box. Still getting hours of enjoyment from it. If we can follow the instructions anyone can. Made a great gift for my father

Someone posted a video of this on Facebook, so I had to have one, didn't I. I didn't like the idea of an assembled model from China (gets lost in PT customs) so the kit it had to be.

Wow - it worked, with a minimum of cursing, swearing and burning meself with the soldering iron. Good instructions.

I found that the holes in the sides weren't 100% popped but a Belkin PC screwdriver sorted that. Fitting the nut & screw joints is relatively easy if you try to make it so the screw is coming vertically upwards into the nut - i.e. swing the box around a bit so the nut doesn't slide out. One minor worry is that the wire supplied is VERY thin and needs careful handling & stripping.

p.s. I didn't really burn meself with the soldering iron!

A great kit that is proving to be a great conversation starter. There is quite a few steps to put this together, some soldering and careful attention to the instructions to make sure that it is wired correctly. Assembly takes some patience using the screws and nuts but the finished gloss black box looks great. We had to file some of the plastic pieces to get the desired fit and ensure that the lid operated smoothly but it wasn't difficult just needed care and patience.

My son (3 years old) thinks this is hilarious. My wife thinks it's completely pointless, but she's missing the point.

Ok, the truth: it's not completely straightforward to assemble as suggested and certainly can't be done it 90 mins. It's well made and is certainly greater than the sum of its parts. And more so, it's utterly useless. A little over priced but bound to give back plenty of smiles.

A real discussion raiser and people magnet to (vainly) switch it on. It may be Useless but it sure is stubborn and successful !!

Took me a whole day to assemble but one click and I am smiling. A great way to start the day. Even the wife likes it.
