    New member from Germany. I'm Dutch, born in South Africa and now living in Dusseldorf in Germany.
    I have been making a Dragon Bow for the last three months or so.
    It is a fantasy steam punk art piece that has a central theme revolving around a miniature crossbow.
    Fighting the forces of evil and all that.
    I put a picture up.
    Hope the size is okay.



    I have now taken it apart to finish the cross bow mechanism.

    Welcome Gemhund, love the sculpture! It looks articulated, can you reposition the legs and such? Will the crossbow be workable?

    Thanks everybody.
    Yes everything is articulated. And the cross bow works well enough so that my wife gets off with me.
    Walks around muttering things like ' dangerous, cook for yourself, never grew up ' and such things.
    Co incidence is that I actually finished the whole project yesterday.
    So this week end is photo time.
    I have a photo bucket account where some 400 pictures are uploaded concerning this project.
