It is simple to show the hatches shut on the model, but I want one to be open to show an aircraft with folded wings on the deck below.
My question is: Did the two hatches on Cdt. Teste slide to the side, or were they rolled up or what was happening with them when an aircraft came up from the hangar below? Sliding to the side would have meant that one half of the deck was covered with the hatch and could not be used (e.g. for the storage of another aiscraft).
I could not find any photo showing the deck and the hatches. Can you help me with a photo or do you know how what happened with the hatches when the cranes brought up an aircraft on deck ?
Thank you very much for your help!
