Your script is a little optimistic - you are asking Modeller to
simultaneously optimize 6 loops, some of which are themselves over the
sampling limit (12 residues) yet you are building only two loop models
for each model, which is nowhere near enough sampling. (For a 12-residue
loop, we typically recommend 500 loop models or more for adequate
sampling.) In your case, you would probably want to optimize each loop
individually, and then combine the best models for each loop.
