 Now that we have some strips of plastic they will need to be cut to useful sizes.  I am using some thin plastic so I cut them easly with light duty tin snips (we keep a pair in the kitchen).  I based the lengths roughly on the paper model. 

Here is the cut-list -
            - the peice that the motor mounts to is about 3.25" X 1.25"
            - the two side peices are about 4"X 0.75"

Then you need to drill some holes. 
The motor I am using is from a printer/scanner.  It has a gear already on it that is 10mm wide.  It also has 2 mounting holoes that are spaced 20mm apart.
