    It's an old one, but perhaps interesting...

    Thanks for sharing this. Looks a little beat up Razz but I like the details that are still present.

    Hi Iagoba,

    What great timing with this topic. Smile

    Recently a guy on the Russian forum posted a crossbow he built that looks very similar to the remains of the one you just posted.



    It's a "stylized" version, but the builder certainly captured the spirit of the original. You guys can check out the original topic here: Link



    Iagoba, thank you for this contribution...now we can sit down with Google translate and read the links we just posted. Welcome to the forum. Smile

    Ivo

    Ok, it was the Nao "Honor" sank in 1540 coming back from Flanders loaded with clothing...
