RE: I Saw it! TF 60 Size Corsair ARF!!!!!

The old saying ..."You get what you pay for" applies here. I am sticking with the Robart 615's. Here is my progress up to this point. I will have more time to work on it after the holidays.

RE: I Saw it! TF 60 Size Corsair ARF!!!!!

I prefer the ultracoat H9 used to the monokote. Seems alot better quality product. Monokote used to be better that it is these days.

RE: I Saw it! TF 60 Size Corsair ARF!!!!!
