Planking is looking good. Where do you get your pushpins? I like those plastic heads they have. I'm sure they are easier on the fingers than T-pins.

Those pushpins are made in CZ, they call them " špendlíky". Not expensive, a box with 50 pieces for close to 3 €
now we continue with the aircraft.
The original plane has a has a kind of luggage flap at the rear
at frst I `ve done a frame


a little bit of planking too

planking the rest

Now it needs a hinge. The first idea was to use a prefabricated hinge, butit wasn`t satisfying. So I`ve done it my self, it is very simple.
I used a small brass tube, solded some small brass sheets and this it was....



Compared to the prefabricated > my own ones is lighter and works very smooth


And so it works. For closing I use magnets, the original locks will be only simulated.

Excellent! I may need a new keyboard after drooling over your handy work. I found those pins on this side of the Atlantic and ordered 2 sets. They are a bit more expensive here about 6.7 Euros.
