hi Mark your build looks absolutely amazing! i was wondering if you would be able to tell me how to make hinges for hatches and others? as i have several models that i would like to have unction hatches and/or bonnets


Hi Teague,

The hinges on this build were mostly just either styrene rod or tubing, depending on the size of the hinge. If I used tubing, I drilled it out so I could use a piece of wire as the center pin. The tubes were then cut into small pieces and glued to the base and lid in alternate sections. After the glue dried, you can remove the wire and still have separate parts for painting. Hope that helps.
