    WW2 Big Joe 5

    Post by jeep on Sun Aug 07, 2011 9:05 am

    Hello
    Member from this forum for some month (but experienced French crossbow builder) I decided to bring my contribution whit one of my work: The OSS BJ5 replica. For this, many thanks to Dr Brunner whit his constant help and encouragement . I bring some modifications due to the fact that I have not the wealth of the OSS research department and I had to build it whit the usual hand tool that you by in any tool general store...I am not sure to master the pictures uploading. First a picture from the original,then my version in detail.
