I have been having problem making a solid image on my mandolin project. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Hi Ronald - I guess the hard parts here are the back and the scrolly thing, right? It seems to me you have pretty decent curves in place - the thing that may make it hard to use these directly is that they appear to be tangent series of arcs - you may end up redrawing curves with single smooth Nurbs curves. The section curves do not really tell enough about how the shape should be at the scroll end of the body - it looks like that is probably pretty complex. I’d say this is a project you’ll have to be patient with - do you have some reference images showing what’s going on on the back?
