Servo control

I’m an avid model builder and often involve action elements in my models. I am building a model pickup with what I want to have is a raisable/lowerable plow. In the engine compartment I want to incorporate a servo/lever action raise-lower plow mechanism. Tiny is important but my actual need is this. I want to activate a circuit using a RF micro sw/trans that will when turned on, operate the servo in a set number of degrees (travel distance) then reverse the same number of degrees. From a spectator viewpoint the plow will lift the plow about a 1/2-5/8 up and then set it back down. Can anyone help with the circuit design to run the servo. Again small/tiny circuit will help. THANKS!
