I use the Google translator which automatically translates foreign languages into English without being told to. Excellent  :-))

Hi, I have the kit & have had a good look at the drawings & parts to build it. The parts are numbered on the plans but not on the wood sheets so my advice would be to put #s on all the wood parts. I have drawn the conclusion after checking it out that it is not too hard to build. Who am I to say( I will try most things once)The quality looks pretty good too. Any other questions feel free to ask.(P.S. There are some very good photos on the net also)The ONLY negative is the poor instructions from billings(a common complaint with their kits)
