Hi there /diy/ I have a bit of a long shot question for you

Im currently making a giant robot costume of Alt-Eisen from super robot wars. I want to have the door on his shoulders be able to open up and close with a small motor or something that I can control with a switch. I have very little experience with this sort of thing though. I did wire up some toy guns into his cannon arm to get the cannon barrels to move and make noise but the doors have me stuck. Vid of the cannons = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9H5wKztYsc

Can anyone give me some suggestions on how to get these doors moving or point me in the right direction on where I could cannibalize something else and use the parts for these doors?

You have my attention. Also looks great already man congrats on the cannons. Definitely want servos. This guy does a good tutorial for them in cosplay.
