I built a science fiction spacecraft elevator. The doors on the floor open, and the spacecraft ascends to the stage. All the doors and elevator are moved together mechanically by only one rotational power. A hand-driven handle or a single motor can be chosen as the power source.
A feature of this model, which is shown below, is that, when the door is closed, the door and floor are flush with each other. At first glance, there seems to be nothing in this space . When I first developed this flush door mechanism, I decided to make a model. It was very challenging to make this mechanism work smoothly.

Notes on the Building Instructions
The building instructions show a hand-driven handle version, not a motorized version. A motorized version can be built by referring to the YouTube video. The model will need to be adjusted after it is completed. The adjustment method can be found on page 58 of the instructions (please refer to the YouTube video).
The instructions are intended for persons who have experience assembling Lego Technic.
You must not copy and distribute the instructions, CAD data, and part lists.
