Cardboard grand piano model

This has been a fun project. It was not modeled after any particular existing grand pianos. The paint is matt as that is what I have on hand. If I make more, I would try a glossy paint. Hope you like it!

Cardboard is usually used as a cheap way to make a mock up to see if a design will work, but this one is definitely a keeper. Amazing detail. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks!

I printed the white key pattern on regular printing paper and pasted the cutout onto a piece of cardboard before stacking the black keys over it.

Yes, the black keys are cardboard as well. White keys are printed on regular paper and glued to a piece of cardboard.

That is great! Now design it for proofgrade materials (even draftboard) and submit it to the catalog! It’d be perfect or other miniatures in there!
