How about making a simple lock like this?

Shouldn't be too hard to knock up.
One bit of tube turning inside another with a small bit attached to the back.
you could even cut a small slot in it and make a mini key!
Then when you turn it it opens and locks the door.
How cool would that be.

They are TINY magnets, but quite strong!. One of these with a bit of metal in the door, job done!

I like the key idea, this is just a simple solution.........

Amazing work of details,

Keep this up and I'm sure this will end up in the Scale 4x4R/C Top Builds forum.

no spring (i think it's hard to make that!); the door handle is attached to the bar of styrene, the bar is rigid (1.5 mm thick and 3-4mm wide) and slide with friction between 2 sheets of styrene.

for fun:

Awsome man! the little metal details are outta control!

Interesting thing to note... I kinda like the look of the lexan body! Its like a see-through car where you can see all the structure and whatnot. Of course itll be way cooler once you paint it... but still. Kind neat to look at the outside where you can see all the extra work youve done! Keep it up!
