Has anyone overcome the problem of small hinges for railway models? I found quite a lot at Micromodele but I am not sure they can do the job: I think they are more design for casket than for doors.  For this purpose they shall close completely flat.

All links or references welcome!

Micromodèle est bien un marchand de modélisme naval. Je vais les appeler au téléphone, car on ne voit rien sur leurs illustrations de 1x2 cm.

Merci,

Finalement j'ai trouvé de petites charnières chez Jet à Lyon. De plus elles ne coûtent que 0,50 euro.

I finaly found small hinges at Jet in Lyon; furthermore they are rather cheap at 0,50 euro. This is the first door I mounted:

Certainly not a very good idea to be copied: setting thoses hinges is a mess! I have eight doors to do. I have to do it again and again. Either the glue went into the hinge,spoiled it so that I had to repace it, or it did not glue at all. I tried Cyanolit, but I am surely wrong but I never succeeded with Cyanolit in sticking anything else than my fingers or the glue cap so that it canot be used anymore: at the price they sell it, it is not a bargain. So I came back to that brave old Araldite: long, long, difficult to,use but so efficient; and two tubes can last for years even opened.

I still have two double doors to do since the two I stuck yesterday with Cyanolit dissassembled this morning!

I stop for a while dealing with these damned hinges, otherwise I shall grow mad (if I am not mad yet!). I glue one and two others unglue... A part from the problem of puttong inlines the hinges that Carl mentionned (I forgot the art of understatement that British may show), I think the thickness of my doors are a problem because either you leave plenty of play betwwen the door and the fixed part (excuse me I do not know the exact term) or the door cannot develop open.
