    Greetings all

    It's been a while since I posted any thing on the forum. Not for lack of interest, but busy.
    Just about finished with my third build. It's based on the Padre Island Bow, which I find very interesting indeed. Followed Lightly's Flicker photos for inspiration. Here's a few picks of the project.

    Thanks for posting these pictures! Very nice, jds6. Anyone would be proud to own and shoot that crossbow. The Spanish style is about my favorite anymore, equal maybe to the German bows.

    Thanks Dane, it's one of my favorite crossbows also. I like the Maltese crossbow too. Much like the Spsnish but more detailed .
