Hmm, I didn't get Eugene's mail afaik...

Good idea. Perhaps you could even use a camera (via the web) for even better feedback in some cases.

Yes, it's good to start with a relatively simple model (mainly external cooling, which is presumably the most important), and expand from there (add cryovent, ways to inject medication and finally perfusion equipment). That would certainly be a useful thing to do for local groups.
