    The hinges are actually two different sizes. The hidden hinge (separated in the pic) has a bigger pin that can be pulled out and function as a closure system. The exposed hinge (the one not separated in the pic) contains a smaller pin that bends too easily when pulled out.

    What kind of screws did you use when attaching the parts? And, did you predrill them I take it?
    You're right, I predrilled with drill bits and used the screws seen below. I like the larger head on these screws because I feel they're less likely to be pulled through the fiberglass if something gets snagged while trooping. I used 6 total, 2 on each part, but could have also used 2 more on the missile. I bought out our local Home Depot, so I'm looking for an online source I can buy a large amount from so I can throw them in with the kit. I should be able to find something.

    I just found a bunch on ebay. I'll buy some asap, so they'll be included in the kits.
