Dunno John-John. Yesterday I had decided to focus on making just one awesome MB. Today, I saw at least 3 concepts here I want to build
. Is a sad yet so very fun addiction. So, I really dunno if it would be worth it to you. Could build it with the thought of selling. I have never had much luck with that though. Not that they don't sell, they do. More just the fact that a monkey can't sell bananas.
on a MP 2009 Felt MP
