Whatever you do, don't do it by eye alone, however hard you try there will be kinks.

A common practice is to avoid lining up the joints in mid curve, because this is where kinking will be harder to overcome. Staggered joints between inner and outer rail will help in that regard. Soldering is often recommended too.
All the best books and online advice recommend this method.

Peco code 75 and Tillig Elite look the best.

Good luck!
