  2. it was my first model ever but I didn't find anything tuff ,I think a beginner can also do this because it is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo easy!
    if you want you can try the magic ball but I don't think so you will be able to do that but I can do because it's difficulty is super high intermediate
