the pick up calibra build

by tosh1985 » Tue Nov 10, 2015 2:27 am

hiya peeps thought id put up a thread on the pick up build ive been working on and its good to see a few already up with people hard at work on theres..
right just to clear up i know this maybe not everyones cup if tea as you all own beautifull examples of the very best of calibra's so i will add that this build is just a bit of fun for me and a learning curve for future builds...
