Killer pics Danny!

I will have some up of the 450Pro Gaui and Mini P this next week, my Mini Protos is in the Local PO to be delivered tomorrow

Wish I had the money to build the Forza side by side with the Protos... but thats not the case...

You can also insert an image from the link to any attachment you have uploaded, so you don't have to post the images remotely.

I like that canopy. I'm going to have to get one of those.
