The photos in the left display the steps of building the task and it displays the steps and inside structure of the model and its reasons to withstand compression.

This seems to be a fun task, even though I was unlucky to miss out on such a task, from the information from friend I can see that it is a fun challenge, here I would like to thank my friends for providing me with the photos.
