For the Falcon 9, the instructions for completing the wrap on the capsule also suggest you start from the edge of the wrap. In this case you pretty much have to do so because the edge of the wrap aligns next to a depression in the capsule. I followed the instructions and the wrap turned out fine (pics 1 through 4 below). The only thing the instructions don't tell you is how far the bottom edge of the wrap should go from the bottom edge of the capsule. I did mine at about 1mm and that seemed to work out fine.

Overall, other that putting the wraps on the tube and capsule, this is a fairly easy Level 1 build. Hopefully my hints for the wraps will make that part pretty Level 1-ish as well.
