And here's my finished entry: A small port, with 9 functions, all powered by a single XL-motor, and just 17x21 studs small! You can control the functions with the switches in front of the actual port. Each switch resembles one function, but all switches are powered by the same motor. Hope you like it :sweet:

Your creation is really inspiring and something special. It's challenging to work in such limited space and still provide such great playability :thumbup:
