are you from the future?
MW 1 is massive. Even fro ma far just look at that dominance when the shot is enlarged.
Whoops, wrong forum! But I can certainly make it look like the future, a render of course. Still around the city, stopping at 3-4 more places and I’ll be heading out. I think you’ll all be pleased
