Nice soldering work! That steering linkage is quite well done. Did you use Albion Alloy tubes on that? If not, check them out as they have 0.1mm walls, e.g,. 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 0.9 are a telescoping tubing set.

 

Oh, and welcome aboard! :clap2:

Thanks for the welcome and yes did use Albion brass tube bought all sizes from .3 to 2 mm I think have the steering work makes for more realistic looks made the white ball by rolling two part epoxy putty and filling to size
