Firstly, many thanks for visiting the Cranes Etc Patreon page!
Let's start with a bit of history.
Cranes Etc was first published as a website in 2004 and it was set up to help people get some good information about construction scale models. From 2011, the content included videos to provide an even better experience.
Advertising revenues enabled the publishing work to continue and grow. But things have changed, and YouTube advertising has declined significantly and no longer provides a viable way to sustain Cranes Etc.
Making good quality reviews and videos is time consuming, and it takes investment too. If you enjoy the content that Cranes Etc offers, or if you find it is helpful, then by becoming a Patron you can help support Cranes Etc to continue, and move forward.
Of course, nobody is required to pay, and it's fine if you don't want to help, but hopefully you will, and get some Rewards along the way. So please take a look at the Rewards offered as additional thanks to Patrons. Your support is greatly appreciated!
