A review of the kit can be found in Kit review section
Yes there was a little but as it came in three sections, I gued each independantly and when dry pulled them together ( hence the mishmash of clamps) . The end gaps were over two of the frames, but were only 2-3 mm so pulled together easily with only a little pressure.
Its a lot of fun and very relaxing compared to the SOTL kits. This is my first, but I want to do the Wattle from plans.
Definitely could become compulsive. with the Cov situation ( no im not a recipient yet), I could be motoring around in the old backyard Spa ( hot tub to our US brethren!).
