Use thin stainless steel (camping saucepan) for a striker plate. Stick foam sealing tape to the door. If stuck around the fuselage frame, entry and exit wears it.Mask hinge tubes before painting. Trial mounting doors to hinges causes paint to flake off.

A roll of door seal strip is available from RS Components (UK) part number 205 0877 (Black) or 205 0855 (Light Grey). Slightly softer than std stuff but doesn't go wrinkly round the corners of the frame.

RS components 245 5660 is a neat door handle for lowering into the top of the sticky out bit on the inside of the doors, allowing you to pull closed. Looks great!
