    I used to have a scale file of this but that was several hard drives ago.
    I had a lot of fun on last year's Brotherhood build but this years builds already looks so awesome that I'd hesitate to participate,- except for that one build that I never did.
    Anyway, if anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it.
    I always wanted to see a Zemaitis-looking mandolin.

    Scan and print them then mail to whatever address Tex PMs you. He won't need all as his comment about Zemaitis indicates :)

    I've also got the Siminoff book if the Captain can't help you.

    @Captain Nutslot
    Just a paper tracing of the body, f-holes and headstock would be awesome. I'll PM you.
    Thanks.

    That is a great book, not only for how to build a F style mandolin but for the history of the Loar era. It has one of the best descriptions of how Gibson did their hand applied sun bursts and Siminoff gives a good understanding of how Loar approached the voicing of his instruments. Highly recommended.

    Thanks so much @Captain Nutslot. You really went above and beyond to send exactly what I needed.
    I'm going to spend a quiet afternoon making some router templates.
    Please let me know if I can do something for you anytime.
