Did you use adhesive to hold the hinges in place, either to the wood or plexiglass, or is the fit good enough?
sheesh, it's been 2 years. I think because they are small and structural, I just used 100%. You'd probably be able to get away with less though.
What level of infill would you recommend?

Instructions

Print off hinges and clips (I use 6 hinges and 4 clips, 2 clips and hinges for front and 2 hinges and 1 clip for each side, see photos) Cut out 3mm acrylic to shape. (It would be great if someone could attach a lasercut window thing to this) Each clip and hinge needs a small cutout from the window for it to fit snugly. Hinges are designed around 3mm steel bar (M3 bolts would also work). Install and you are done. I have included the .dwg file for anyone that wants to change it.

edit: Drandolph has made a cut file for the windows; http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30894.

Hmmmm... Very interesting. Might give this a whirl.
