I decided to build a violin in foreseeable future and before I start I want to create set of drawings to follow (and I can share them with you here) and perhaps even some 3D arch models later if time permits. I prefer look of del Gesu, the middle bout is much more sexy than Strads and I happen to have the Kreisler poster so I decided to give it a go. This may take months or even years depending on detail to be included but I will post as will progress. My sources so far are: - Kreisler poster (scanned into computer) - Excellent hi-res pics from LOC (with some measurements included -f holes, stop, scroll, edge thickness) - Pics and measurements in description from Tarisio - Addie's drawings here from Maestronet that feature mould outline, f-holes and scroll template I gave them a brief look and found some notable differences between numbers in the poster and LOC files. I guess it is hard to measure worn scroll so tiny differences can be expected but some are more than 0.5mm off. Most concerning are the back dimensions : Tarisio says - 355-168-112-205 but the poster (said to be accurate) is 353-167-107-203. (Perhaps the Tarisio numbers are over-the-arch?) I'm not completely sure now if I want to make drawings with all the asymmetries of original or adjust them for a "generic" "modelled after Kreisler" model but sure enough I would like to know what is the true size of that thing so start with... Anyone with hands on experience here to provide some reliable insight?
