donīt know exactly about the animating of it, but have you tried bonechains, splinamate or endomorphs?. haveīt done it befor so i cannot guide you throu but search the forums for it i remember having seen threads about the same issue and maybe others have answered this before. but as for rendering of a twosided page you will want to see the following link where i show how to make a true twosided material without having to duplicate and flip the polys.
