Italeri 1/72 Scale
Gigant size hinges on the front of the Giant Glider.
I drilled the nose halves and inserted pins in them too. I trimmed the front half of the hinges down so that there are only four holes in the front half of the hinges.
The pins are as big as the machine guns.
As you can see from the inside, I glued the pins flush with the inside walls.
Making a functional model out of a non-functional one can be difficult and in this case will make it a bit less prototypical, but I am happy with the trade off.
