Default Estes Boeing ALCM hinges

I have a friend restoring an old Estes Boeing ALCM rocket. The old kit is missing the two hinges that actuate the wings... and he needs help. I figured I'd reach out here to see if anyone has an old unbuilt version that they could scan the hinges for him...

Here is a link to the thread showing his progress thus far:

Pointy Side Up!

Dreaming of making the rockets I dreamed of as a kid (and then some).

"The Guide says there is an art to flying", said Ford, "or rather a knack."
"The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss."

Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.

You would need a 3D scan as the hinges are more than just flat parts!

I searched around for the 3D printer files for these 2 hinges, the rear launch lug and pitot tube and was unable to find anything. Here is a link to the instructions that shows these parts The 2 hinges hold the wings and also make up the forward launch lug.
