    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.

    Spanish 1500's  crossbow found in a shipwreck 856b19368feet Spanish 1500's  crossbow found in a shipwreck Fc760c844e4et Spanish 1500's  crossbow found in a shipwreck Ad350e244a8ct Spanish 1500's  crossbow found in a shipwreck B19e63f861fdt Spanish 1500's  crossbow found in a shipwreck 37841b5c7bf9t

    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...
