There is a scratchbuilt UC in this film with the prototypical steering mechanism. It is a beautiful runner, which proves that the concept works well in the model world too. The builder wanted to see if replicating the mechanism would replicate its manner of movement too.

This is a good introduction to the UC and shows how the steering worked, starting at about 04:00.
