Q. Is the soldering tricky. I have a solder iron, could help my great nephew but I am an inexperienced solderer! Gill
A. Hi Gill, thank you for your question. This kit is designed for the beginner and should not have many parts to solder. It should be a fairly simple kit to make.

Had great fun assembling the kit, and great fun adjusting the pots to get it moving as it should. Had to lock the cat out he thought it was something to eat.
