I have made several models in the past, however, never incorporated opening doors.

You’ll find many members here that can give you constructive advice beyond expectations… and if you surf their posts you’ll gain many usefull tips… Check out htl, Dutchy, Pjonesy, GR8HUNTER, crowie, jason1974, Bruce Barber, Darkmyble, SouthavenToyMaker... just to name a few that come to mind immediately… There are many more and if you check out their buddies, you’ll get countless more worthy modellers.

As for me, my advice is that the more moving parts you include on the model, the more opportunities you have for breakage… We are all proud of our builds and always (at least I do) brag to visitors about some of the intricacies of selective models, only to reach for the glue bottle after the visitors have left and I’m just left with the repair bill and no reward for my egotist demonstration breakdown. Over time I have started to include less moving parts than more, but then that may be because I’m getting more clumsy with old age… but the desire for detail remains!

I gave up French back at highschool in ‘64… so I missed that one.

Ok. Now I have another deal. I have to make a real “capote” for a new model. If anyone has suggestions…
