This is a close match(I think) to the tng tricorders found in the later seasons, it is considered a science tricorder. Yes the hinges are functional but they take some fiddling. credit to @thenewdominion for the decals; you need to scale the decals based on your paper printer

I know the body is a little misshapen but it is the best i've seen online for free, plus it was my attempt number one.
2 mm shell
1 sand it (I used 220)
2 then alternate spraying with rustoleum autobody car primer (of the color wanted) and sanding.
3 repeat - slowly decrease the grit size (I finished with 600)
4 add decals (I lost the file for the ones in the photo(sorry)) and use paint pens for the sensor grid
