Understandable. It’s worth the trip, just maybe not that big of a trip. You can find photos of most of the vehicles on exhibit online. Neat stuff.

Here's an update on progress.  Using some "H" hinges from Micro-Mark the doors have been mounted but instead of using the small brass pins that come with the hinges I have used a piece of stainless steel wire.  That way I can keep the hinges in alignment and at the correct location so that the doors will open without tilting up or down.  The doors themselves have been shimmed also with strips of plastic that bring the openings back even after the scribing process.

The doors as well as the door jamb is notched to accept the hinge halves.  CA is used to set them in place and then small nails complete the process.  Holes in the hinges are drilled into the resin and the nails set in CA.  Then the nail heads are ground down so that the hinge can close without binding.  It's a pretty secure process that has been used on multiple models with this type of door hinge assembly and it has worked well.  The biggest challenge is to be sure that the CA does not get into the joint of the hinge when it's applied.  Small doses are the best anecdote.
