Landing Gear Doors

Just like the landing gear wheel wells the landing gear doors are also in green cardboard to my disappointment. So today during my lunch break I went to a local hobby store and picked up a 1/32" sheet of basewood which was the thinnest piece of wood I could find that was fairly ridged. And unlike the kit which is made of balsa, basewood is stronger, perfect for the cardboard parts I want to replace. All I had to do was trace out the parts and use a sharp xacto to cut the pieces.
