What step are you getting stuck on? Based on the info in the thread you linked there are a few things you may be missing. I noticed you mention that you scaled to 4.7 on the X axis. The tutorial states that the scale MUST be in whole numbers (see step 2). Start there and be sure to follow line by line. If parts get missed the end product won't be as you expect.
