      There's a comprehensive colour assembly and testing guide for the RXTX
      Ensemble on the web, freely down loadable. I found it best to print it
      all off and use the check boxes to confirm I didn't miss any stages.
      As a total novice the similar guide took me to a working RX, and two
      more after that. I then progressed to an RXTX and the guide for that
      resulted in another excellent project seen to perfect fruition.

      The manual is here Tim:
