  • Study model of that studies the hinge and track system used to allow panels to slide and lock in place. Material used in model is basswood, acrylic, and pen springs. (1/4 scale)
     
     
  • Final model with functioning pin hinge system and track system. Material used in model is acrylic and pen springs. Material in reality would be 1.25" steel square tubes and 1/2" frost HDPE. (1/4 scale)
