Any decent dolls house shop will have them in various sizes.

Hi Helderluiss

You don't say what size you want, but these sites do 4.5mm and 5mm depth hinges.

A square 4 milimetres would be the ideal.

Thanks for the links, I will search them  ;)

Until now, no reply from grandads, probably I'm rushing this to much  {-) Can he be on vacation :)

Well, the model of the Loyal Tender that I'm building can bee seen here:

In the last picture you can see a locker called "ferrolho" in Portuguese . Can this things or similar be seen in any dolls house shop or model boat fittings shop since this are a pain to make and I need a lot of them  :-\
