Some of the block diagrams are incorrect for placement of the corner units.  When arranging the corner units in the blocks, make sure the dark squares look like the block diagrams.  The 2 1/2” x 4 1/2” light rectangles will not look like the diagrams, but that’s okay!  You do not need to remake the corner units!
