Doors closing system

After having cut the doors (see my previous posts) on the sides of the fuselage, I now had to provide an opening and closing fixing system.
I used the mini piano hinge that I presented on the door and the fuselage and then cut the hinge to the right size. A little sanding to adjust it and they are glued with epoxy

For closing, I used a system designed to close the canopies. A blow of dremel to reserve the place.

Then we stick a piece of plastic tube for closing. I put everything in place and I stick with epoxy. The whole is taped held in place the drying time of the epoxy.

When finished, the door opens and closes.

Subsequently, I garnished the inside of the door with depron
