Hinges
« on: April 14, 2017, 01:10:14 PM »

Yes please O0 O0

I need some micro hinges as tiny as possible,  O0 the flaps need to be a maximum of 4mm in length depth doesn't matter I can trim them down. However the 'pin' needs to be as tiny and as unobtrusive as possible. I did make 4 with scraps of photoetch brass sheet, but they were just too flimsy and twisted in use.

SO can anyone suggest a supplier of something so small??

Brian60,

Some of the model aircraft have some miniature hinges for the ailerons', rudder etc.

Worth having a look at a few those sites.
