I used to glue them on the bottom piece first, but it was recommended to glue the walls and baffles first, then attach the bottom and later the top. It works.

I make it a point to align all the bottom edges perfectly, and if any are a fraction too tall, it will be at the top where it doesn't matter nearly as much. We want it to hold water and not leak, after all.

For me, I prefer to have a clean front panel, so I glue the ends and baffles between the front and back pieces.

The Model M is a good sump for small tanks and small stands. Be sure to use a small return pump, as too much flow will flood the tank with microbubbles.
