ORE TRANSFER CAR - Part 5
Doors - The door assembly is comprised of a fixed panel on top and a moveable panel under - four assemblies total. The doors are activated by a motor or mechanism concealed in the space between the cab and the hopper end wall. The fixed and moveable doors were built from .020 sheet styrene and .030x.100 strips and a few .100 I-beams. I still need to add hinge pins and spacers and some sort of arm to trip the door, whether I actually build the activator or not.
