Default How would I make a small remote controlled door?

How would I make a small hatch on a hinge that opens from an mdf box [like the door of a little room], that can be operated [opened/closed] by remote?... with minimal expertise [obviously... if I knew my stuff I wouldn't be asking]

Are there specific electronic parts I can strip and attach straight to the door/hinge?
Or can you even buy such a contraption whole in some form?

Or failing that could I make one operable by a button?...

Thank you so much for reading

I'm thinking that cervo motors from old RC cars could be used, but as DM said, we need a little more detail on this one. Sounds possible.
There is a very fine line between my hobby and a mental illness.
