That's a lot of motion. Very cool.
It's a beauty. I'll show this to my Viola playing granddaughter.
Some hardware arrived so I could finish up the robots right hand "the bow" hand. It was missing a few fingers and the thumb. I am sure he will play better now that he has all his digits.
A few shots of the Left hand on the neck of the violin.
Very interesting. Thanks for posting this unusual Meccano piece.
Can you let us know the exact hight? Looks like some 3 feet.
Hi Klaus (Lunik)!
When this topic popped up, I knew at once that this is a topic for THE construction kit specialist!
I guess you can date every single piece on this tin man!
Do you think it is based on a regular Mecchano blueprint?
Wonderful Job John
Somewhere I have pics of what a wreck this was when received
Amazing you bought it back to this condition
Been trying to uncover some history on this & was surprised
to find this was owned by E who won it 5-6 years ago at an auction but never took possession
& subsequently sold it through smithouse although I can't find that particular auction
I purchased it from Claus who shipped it from Germany along with a Henk Non-xray machine
& a full size Henk Robot that was used in a commercial as part of a package
The trip from Germany to the USA wasn't too kind to the robot &
I'm sure going from Florida to Washington State wasn't great for the
He's been well travelled to say the least
Here is the only auction I was able to find for the violin robot
Waiting for to see if Claus has additional info
if he does I'll add it to the post
Yes the auction picture was the only source I had for what things should look like when put back together.
Guess we have too many "KLAUSES" here in Germany. The one Klaus from Hannover is here LUNIK. The other one Claus from Krefeld was better known as HOTBOTZ. And we have the Klaus who is called BLECHROBOTER. Not to name one of the earliest german robot collectors - a Klaus from Meerbusch - who would be well known by older collectors... Yes its a KLAUSMANIA over here...
Many "KLAUSES", but only one Henk:
