My descent stage is 90% assembled.
The instructions for this are woefully inadequate.
There are several mis-numbered parts (F8 and F9 don't exist, they should be E8 and E9).
Part E8 (labelled F8 in part of the instructions) is called for 3 times, there are only 2 in the kit, and only one is needed for the corner with the ladder. All others should be E9.
E1,2,3,4 (2 of each) only fit in specific spots, so I simply cut all of them off and tested them one at a time as I glued the leg supports on. Pretty sure I still got a couple in the wrong spot.
Similarly F2, and F3 are not interchangeable. The pins that secure them to the body are directional.
The gold coating also seems to be at least partially impervious to styrene cement. I recommend scraping the mating surfaces clean, or reinforcing with superglue.
And my earlier complaint about no painting guidance is slightly wrong. It's not in the instruction sheet, but rather on the bottom of the box, which is not a place I have ever had to look before.
