Help - for a new Maggini project


Recommended Posts

Hello. I plan to make a Maggini violin model based on  Jalovec's drawing (Italian makers). Also "Paolo Maggini, his life and work" book from Hills is very interesting reading. Is Jalovec's plans a good material to work with? 
Since I plan to make it without mold, on the back, and this is the first "on the back" violin I make, I would like to know more about that way of construction.

Here in Maestronet is mentioned an old Strad 3 pages issue CONSTRUCTING A BRESCIAN VIOLA / Ruth, Benjamin (March 2006) but I cannot find to buy it anywhere. The Strad sells issues from 2010 and after. Also, my local library has no Strad magazines. 
Also, there are several discussions on building on the back, and somewhere is mentioned Leroy Geiger's book on violin making (something that I am not sure if it worths buying).
Which would be the better method to follow?

If there is something helpful that I can purchase I would be happy to listen (except books like "1520-1724 Violinmakers in Brescia", that I cannot afford the price).
