    Nice figure but the bow is not right. Yes it is me on my hobby horse again. Unusual for an English longbow to have recurve ends like that. Not saying it is impossible but fairly unlikely. Bow stave is wrong section, it should be a deep D shape with the flat side on the outside curve of the bow and tapering in thickness towards the ends.. String location is wrong and crudely executed. A loop at one end fitted into notches on the end of the bow and the string was tied to notches at the other end. A well equipped archer like this would probably have horn tips on the bow too. There is plenty of reference online guys and a quick google search would come up with some excellent reference pictures. If you are going to go to all the trouble and expense of producing a figure why not spend 5 minutes on Google to get the details correct! See below! Cheers, Bob
