[The story of this creation]

It is not an update, but just the story of this lego violin.

In 1993, when I was 13 years old, I made a Lego cello. 
At that time, I just outlined what I saw and created it.
I had to make the lego cello with black brick which was the most of the bricks I had.
The string was represented using the '# 3228 straight rail' included in the 6542
set(Launch & Load Seaport).

It looks very grim now, but it is a very meaningful work for me.
Twenty-five years later, with LDD, I was able to create a stringed instrument again, using a variety of new bricks to create a more natural curve.


I think this creation will be a very meaningful creation for Lego fans who love music.
Thank you for your interest and supports.
