Assembly is easy as you proceed attaching all items tagged in a numerical order. Up to three pieces are attached with the back one being smaller so the screw bites in. The result is about 18" tall. My grandson loved building stuff but for some reason showed no interest. So, I finally built it myself.The T-Red has been staring at me ever since and I swear I hear it saying is saying, "Fly me."
