Andrea Amati baroque violin body and neck

Almost all of the pieces of the baroque violin are ready (I also have to build the fingerboard, pegs,button and tailpiece). Now I need to nail (yes "nail", with antiques square nails as shown in this x-ray picture) the neck on the ribs (as this was done prior to the modern neck attachment: with a mortice) before being able to glue the bottom and the top to the ribs.
