minor matters of scale ...

What is actually incorrect with my model? ie what doesn't work?

while i think it is correct in a general sense, it may be difficult to label discrete camera values on your elastic model along the axes (1/60s, f/3.5, ISO 1600) ... maybe not ...

with fixed "string" lengths instead of elastic, someone could make a real scaled mechanical model of this "exposure triangle" and see that if they widen their aperture to f/2.8 from f/4, they have enough "slack in their string" that they can increase their shutter speed from 1/200s to 1/400s, etc. ...

whatever floats your boat ...
