The nose access cover on our airplanes use a spring loaded latch that we
access through the nose gear hole on the XL RG and from inside the plane on
our SUV. I ordered 20 of the latches just in case someone ask how did you
do that. I think the price of the latch is just under $10.00. I put an
aluminum lip on the front of the cover that slides under the front of the
opening and the latch is installed on the fuselage just behind the cover.
I made a small right angle bellcrank out of aluminum and connected the
bellcrank direct to the spring latch on one end of the bellcrank and a
1/16" cable from the other end to wherever the release is going to be
placed. The 1/16" cable is routed through nylaflow tubing that is glassed
to the inside skin of the fuselage. A key ring (round thing) is placed on
the end of the cable for a finger pull.
Let me know if this is what you have in mind.

Has anyone considered some sort of latching mechanism for the nose access
I was considering a release inside; accessible by reaching up from the nose
