  I could never animate mdl, 
   BUT you can try to translate your model.mdl   to model.ac .dxf ...
with threedconvert which is in your
           source/util/Modeller   directory
I use threedconvert to convert 
from mdl format to ac format or dxf format.

Sometime the result is bad, sometime very good, sometime threedconvert
give a segmentation error.

If the result is good you could manipulate your model with a CAD
application (Blender,AC3D....). 
And give a name to each part you want animate.
