Almost completed an old white metal K's coal tank. Had soldered the odd bit
on a couple of others, but this one is my first nearly all soldered.
Incredible the ease and speed it goes together, plus hardly any clean up
required. Much easier to get things lined up correctly - esp side tanks at
start as well as can fix if need to change later without masses of cleanup.
Also bent top of tank too much and it was about to break under its own
weight - quick solder, fixed solid in seconds.
Realise most kits say soldering preferred, but didnt realise the benefit
