The helix was a real pain to get right, The instructions claimed it would take a couple of hours to assemble, took me 4 days........

Goodness me! What a lot of track to attend to. I can quite believe the time it took to do the helix, it would have taken me much longer :lol: . It is very impressive indeed.
