    Hey guys I'm building a scale garage for my rc rock crawler and I am in the process of getting ready to do the garage doors and I would like to motorize them somehow! My question is do you guys have any ideas how to do this??? the door will be about 14 inches wide and 14 inches tall made out of wood.....i was taking a look at actuators but wanted to get some input first,,also maybe run a motor with a spool on it and run a cable from the bottom of the door that winds up on the spool?? Any input is much appreciated!! forgot to add I will be using u 12 volt dc power supply 5A.i would also like to know how I could wire a switch to make the door go up then hit the switch and have it close.
