At this point we have the sub assemblies completed.
Try to leave this hole open, most of your wires will pass through it.
When you do join the top and bottom halves of the hull make sure all 4 wires, (the two nacelles, top hull and bottom hull) are all going out the back, in between all the posts.
Once the hull halves are joined run all four of those wires through the small square hole, so that they are running into the battery compartment.
Next you can attache the five rear wall parts. Start at the outside, gluing the rear engine section last. When you attache the engine section make sure to run it's wire through that same hole to the battery compartment. (Note: You may not want to glue the engine section on yet. After you attache the wires to the circuit board you may want to pull some of the extra wire out of the battery compartment and tuck it inside the hull)
Now you can attach the neck and head. The wires will naturally run into the battery compartment.
After that there are three final LEDs to glue.. The first is from the neck and gets glued in the very bottom of the hull. There is a big hole in the bottom of the battery compartment so you can reach the bottom of the hull.
Now there are two LEDs for flood lights that shine on the top of the hull.
After you have all the LEDs glued, carefully move them out of the way so you can put the circuit board and battery pack in.
If you are advanced and comfortable with electronics, you can cut off the battery pack. Where the battery pack sits, is the housing for the stand's pole. you could drill a small hole in this and run a wire into the base so you can attach it to a plug in power supply. The stand's pole is hollow to allow this.
The top and bottom hulls have been given some silver paint to help defuse light, the top saucer has lights shining at the bulkhead's forward windows. The bottom hull has flood lights that shine on the outside bottom hull
At this point I skipped ahead and added the nacelles before joining the hull halves. I don't see how you would run the nacelle wires if you had already attached the top and bottom hull together.
Check the clearance on your back engine section. The middle LED and it's leads are too big for that engine section to fit. You have to carefully bent the leads to the LED 90 degrees so it will fit. This is called out in the instructions. Test your fit against the top hull before you join the top and bottom halves.
