    This is the original best original thread on the topic I can find.

    It is a bit incomplete.

    I have always used bellows and I am very happy with them. I do know that Alf and Nigel use a very ingenious method where you put heat shrink over "snake" control cable. This works well and is very small and neat. So it's very good for small models.
