I have took some time to layout it UVs, so it is ready to be textured.
One last thing I did, was create controls. Based on my previous test of how to animate a string, I used the same method for the strings on the viol and also for the bow. Here is a small test animation of the viol moving the strings.
One problem that I found, and I will ask Alan tomorrow for some help, is when I move the overall group with the viol mesh and the controls, the strings have offsets. I would think maybe is a question of grouping, I will ask tomorrow.
