I have been working off and on on an Italeri 1/72nd scale Gigant glider, a WWII German aircraft.
My plan was to pin the hinges to the airplane and doors.
Using my pin vise, I drilled a set of little holes in the fuselage and the doors. I then inserted these little plastic rods into the holes. The rods were trimmed down a bit but left long so that I could adjust them.
