    As always Mr. SAM, EXCELLENT WORK!

    Interesting use of scanner to achieve high quality pictures of the parts and detail work. I would have never guessed it was done with a scanner, simply amazing work and an inspiration to us all! sunny

    I love it mr Sam! Really nice.
    My first build has. Lot in common with this beauty.
    It inpires me, i know a hunter who might have some antler for me.
    The white gives such nice contrast with the dark wood!
    Thanks for the drawings.

    Lovely work, Mr. Sam. For those who are interested, the Maximilian I bows and Louis XII bow, displayed side by side, are in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. That's the big museum in the Austrian palace complex, hard by the equestrian statue of Prinz Eugen. The armory collection is second to none, and the musical instruments next-door are just as fabulous... though I could do without the aquamarine 1950's Bosdendorfer piano... though maybe it would look better with a 1960-model Bond-babe lounging nearby, with a long cigarette holder. Ahh well, your milage may vary. Geezer

    Harumpf! I got so involved with the piano-babe, I forgot to make my point. Mr. Sam's Spanish sporting bow is very close to the three in the Viennese museum. If you find yourselves in the vicinity, check 'em out! Geezer
