    Yep. That's why Granny used to threaten Sylvester with selling him to a violin maker.

    Excellent progress, Martin!

    I know this casting has an excellent representation of the strings, but have you ever tried to reproduce them with some other method? I've wondered about using fine wire, but haven't tested it.

    Prost!

    So - Watch the beautiful tresses stuff on the upper body a last time - now there is really nothing to be seen ...:

    I have first the - still unfinished - second arm and the second hand back temporarily mounted.

    Then the Kobza was glued to the figure - again with two-component adhesive. The instrument "depends" on only two adhesive dots - gray collar and thigh ...:

    After the adhesive had cured, I have the provisionally attached parts removed, and **hurrah** it keeps...:

    The interplay of colors (clothing and wood) I like exceptionally well ...
