making up the working throttle cable....

Cable works pretty good right now.

Need to make up three more Webers and we will see if the cable will work when all 4 are hooked up, might be to much friction.

Thanks for looking in!

In case you're going to do a couple Webers in 1/12. Sign me up for a batch.
Other than that I've run out of things to say to this. Mesmerizing. And sometimes I look at my 1/12 stuff and
think "gee, that's tiny" and then I think of this thread. Utterly bewildering what you are achieving with this
model.
Cheers,
Roman

Lovely work; I'm almost glad MFH has NOT done any GT40 kits -I don;t think I could handle the details anymore.
