    Bomb bay doors ?

    depends on the plane and the curvature of the doors, however robart makes an offset hinge that is often very useful. Many times you need to make your own custom hinges.

    Bob Violet (BVM) makes offset hinges and air driven cylinders which work well for any door. Jet guys use the for gear doors.

    Bomb bay doors ?

    We are putting bombays on our B-25`s and tried the option that came with the plans. That did not work so we changed and are using two ni-rods w/one servo. If you would like photos e-mail me. The Prez.

    If the subject needs a piano hinge, Nelson Hobby Specialties has them. Perfect for bay doors. (Ziroli has them on his Avenger Torpedo bay)

    There is a pretty slick system on this page. I am not sure it will work with your setup. But Its a dang nice route to go if you can !

    Just wondering if you have any idea just how old these threads are you dug up?
    For a kit you are, and to a kit you shall return.
