The big issue in our scale is finding sliding horn blocks (journals).

I re-built the Yeti chassis using Slater's 0 gauge sprung horn blocks - so far so good, but then you hit the next obstacle, pivoting (hinged) coupling rods, which is why I converted the Yeti to chain drive :nod::nod: without coupling rods.
Oh I built all those things myself, I do have a lather though pivoted coupling rods are pretty easy so long as you remember to use the paper trick to keep solder at bay.

Oh, I can do the soldering - it's the making bits where I struggle.
