Gibson Les Paul /1:10 scratchbuild/
This time I’d like to present model that perhaps to be quite unusual. Planes, tanks and other automotives seem to be most popular objects of scale modeling. Guitar model could seems not interesting for everyone. But those who enjoy sounds of rock’n roll gonna like it. Les Paul is a type that is still in production since 1952. It can be said that during this time, that guitar was used to write history of rock culture. Las Paul has been played by many of best guitarists like Roy Orbison, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin, Keith Richards from Rolling Stones, Marc Boland from T.Rex and of course Slash from Guns n Roses. Built model shows left handed variant that is used by Paul McCartney. Why this one? I built this one as a gift for my girlfriend with whom we saw the McCartney’s gig.
Model is built completly from scratch on the basis of bule prints avaible at web.
As meterials for construction used were polistyren sheets, medical needels, fishing lines ant other seemingly unnecessary stuff. For presentatnion real guitar needs a stand.
I also built one for my model, soldered from copper rods. To store this delicacy, I built from balsa a little case.
Hope you gonna like it 😉
