Making nose gear hatch in A488 ICON-A5

Hi, Iíve finished making the nose gear hatch.
I constructed it on a hull that was made by vacuum foaming.
The hull is made of thin plastic plate, itís reinforced by FRP.
Even though, it still has flexibility, the each center of hinges needs certain continuity.
I made the centers using long carbon rods. This way seems to be correct. Even if the hull will be vended, the hinge shall work.
