Contest Brief

I want to generate a 3D model of an existing I've built with help of a carpenter, and then generate some variations of it

The final format has to be blender. The model has be able to be exploded in all its main parts (I mean it shouldn't be a vertex set, it should be a group of wood cuts, keyboards, etc).

The bounding box of the original is: 56 cm deep, 77 cm width, and 28 cm heigth ( without music stand)
It should grow in the further models to accomodate larger and more keyboards.

So the models I need are the following variations of the current organ (which has 2 crossed keyboards of 37 keys)

1) The same style, but with 2 paralell 49 keys keyboards (65 cm total keys width approx) (No keyboard crossing)

2) The same style, but with 2 paralell keyboards of 61 keys ( 83 cm total keys width approx) (No keyboard crossing)

3) The same style, but with 3 paralell keyboards of 61 keys (83 cm total keys width approx) (No keyboard crossing). This model should grow in height from the previous 2, preserving the style)

Optional ideas (could help you to differentiate your proposal)

A matching table, where the organ will sit, with a volume pedal, like the 80's double keyboard electronic organs.
Some stylistic variations from the overall design
Renderings of the organs in an antique/brick/stone environment

An additional bounty can be considered for a cnc/cad file blueprint of the models, let me know if you can work on it.
More details can be found on the following files (Attaching files doesn't work for me)

    Oops, and maybe if we slim down the arms, the upper part of the lateral extrusion would need to be just rectangular, let's see how it looks. Thanks!

    The keyboards should have : 65 cm total width for the 49 keys, and 84 cm for the 61 keys, and 13 cm long. I would need 2 main changes and 3 not so important ones before I give you the prize: 1) The keyboards should start from the Do key ( The groupings of black notes should begin from 2 notes groups, then 3). 2) Let's try with an almost horizontal arm, keeping the rounded corners, this way: the front edge of the lateral boards + arms should be maintained, and we should rise the back of the arms, rendering them almost horizontal and slimmer, but with the rounded corners. 3) If you have time, we use keys with slim endings, you can see #4 entry for how they are. 4)Another pending issue is the pedal, lets put it 45º inclined, and let's make the hole a bit bigger above the pedal, so a foot can stay there :-), normally the hole has an inside limiting box, you can search for "swell pedal". 5) The double 49 keys keyboard should have a smaller screen. Many thanks for your excellent work!

    #6 is almost exact copy of my design and got 5 stars?? I made my 4 versions over 5 hours, took a lot of research, already got models ready in Blender format. Could you explain what you want, do you want your existing model (in your video) to be improved/changed or kept as it is?
