Nice... love the Flash Gordon style fin. There are some retro rayguns featured on my fab impossibly retro-futuristic website (um... excuse the plug :))

Now those really are cool. I like the competition they're running too with it's buy one win the other two for free first, and presumably only, prize. One thing is for sure, if you bought one.....you'd just have to have the other two :thumbsup:

Now what can I sell to get in the competition :D
