double sideways burr

I am frustrated at not solving what looks like a very simple problem of putting these 6 pieces together. Does anyone have a picture of the "first three installed" so I can at least get going with this puzzle?

It is definitely not a simple problem, I can attest to that!

I found the problem wasn't so much about working out where the pieces need to be, but more about having enough hands to actually manage it. The pieces are colour matched, so that definitely helps.

I recommend adding as many pieces as you can, one at a time. Then when you've put together as many as you can, try expanding the puzzle to see how it moves. It's been a while since I solved it, but I think this is the method I went for.
