Start by building the base as shown. Notice there are two silver rods with a blue spacer and blue clip fitted, these can be fitted now or later on.
This image shows the build up to the 10th layer, you will notice there are some gaps. Leave out 4 yellow pieces from the 1st four layers and then leave out four pieces from the 7th layer upwards. There are 2 silve rods fitted on the 2nd layer, these wil be part of the motor mounts.
Build up the next 7 layers and it should now look like this. On the 13 layer fit teh silver rods as shown and on the 17th layer fit a black rod end clip.
Build the next 3 layers leaving a gap of 3 for the arms.

That's it, job done and finished.
This is my latest build, Wall-E. There are some basic instructions that go with each image so that you may be able to build this great model.
The link below is to a Word doc and lists all the parts required to build this.
