Three big reasons that I like having the door removable.
1: I was able to build the hinge more flush with the outside skin, as I insert the pins from the center of the hinge, and don't need access to the hinge eyelets that are obstructed by the skins at the top and bottom.
2: I was able to leave the door off while building the rest of the plane. Made access much easier, and I wasn't banging into it.
3: First thing I do during the annual condition inspection is pull the door off. Easier access into the baggage area/tailcone, and I can get into the pilots side door without having to push the door out of my way.
