here is the final model I'll be throwing into the printer. Not too concerned with it being not 100% accurate. A good model can take days. I made this one is a couple of hours so expectations are at the same level.
Learned a ton. This one will go into the trash bin but a fun experiment.
The hinges worked but need to be beefed up a bit and given more space to move. I did immediately break the tail end off at the hinge. The ball joints are tight but with a little sanding should move freely.
