Was admiring my new toy, but i noticed this. I know the Russians are clever, but how in hell do you lift the aircraft out of its hanagr when the hinges are in the middle? surely the hatch should open from the edges?

 

Even if the wings hing at the very root (there's a reason you don't do this) getting it out of there would be really difficult, if not inmpossible.

well obviously its a paper ship, but I'd at least expect Weegee to put up a competent model, its not as if they haven't had plenty of ship design practice by now.

Unless I'm very much mistaken, that hatch works by flipping one side over the other and then opening the rest by lifting it from the fold (EDIT: alternatively with some internal mechanism). The contact surfaces makes sense if that's the case at least.

Here's a more modern example with cylinders:
