Scale Vintage 1938 "Radio King" drum set

As a drummer who began playing in 1964 and loves jazz, I was naturally influenced by Buddy Rich. (See my drumming-related site here.) When I later developed an interest in 3D graphics, this seemed like an obvious project to do. As a fan of Buddy's, I was familiar with the type and sizes of drums he used, and I happen to own a very similar set myself. So, I was able to measure all the parts, to make this a scale model.

Several tutorials, as well as the 3D model of this set, are included in my "Modeling with MODO, Volume One".

The Details:

The model, which is a mixture of sub-d and hard polys, includes all the parts you see here, as even includes a pair of sticks.
