I am a former grinding engineer, photographer and Doorman, unfortunately, I was assaulted mid 2000 and after 18 months in hospital and over 10 surgeries I had to make a decision to have my leg removed, from that moment on, my life changed, everything went wrong, and, now 15 years on I have no work, and extremely poor health with my heart and illness in general.

I also suffer from severe pain, I know now that many of you will have made your mind up that I am some sort of scrounger :(
This is NOT true, anyone who knows me well will agree with what I say. At the time I lost my leg I was juggling three jobs, the first was my main job as a grinding engineer the second was as a Professional self-taught photographer which is where I earned my L.D.P.S distinction one of the proudest moments of my life next to the birth of my children and my Oath of Allegiance to the Queen, and finally one was as a nightclub doorman, which, was where I was assaulted. After the assault everything stopped, my interaction with the outside world stopped, my photography career first was placed on hold but pretty soon it was finished, then my health deteriorated even more and the diabetes kicked in, followed by heart disease and musclo skeletal problems, increasing amounts of drugs including controlled pain relief.
So why am i telling you this?
I feel its vital to understand how important this whole project is for me and why i do it.

I started building kits for the first time about 3 years ago now and fell in love with it, i could build at home at my own pace and i did not feel like a waste of space, suddenly the days were not quite so long i started to learn all i could watching other YouTube creators and practicing what i had seen, fairly soon i started to generate models that were fair, at about the same time i joined an online community that would go on to help an motivate me over the coming year, unfortunately i then suffered my first real bout of depression and went on to have 2 more dark periods before being asked not to come back, my world was crushed and it just made things much worse, at this point i had been dabbling in YouTube a little bit , and i made a decision to start my own channel up for modelling, but before that happened a friend ( at the time) and i joined up and created a group together that would cater for people that had depression, bi polar etc, sadly differences of opinion led to it closing down and i instead concentrated on my channel as it is, i put everything into my channel my heart and soul goes into it, i am learning modelling, and now electronics for models too, all of my videos are LIVE there is no editing  and all mistakes are real time, members can sit and learn with me but at the same time i hope i can help people with depression, nothing gives me greater pleasure than helping people build something or turning that frown 'upside down!'

Up until now I have financed everything myself, but government changes and ongoing living costs mean that as of now we are officially classed as below the poverty line, I'm not a greedy man and you would find me the last person to ask for help, to demonstrate this you do not even have to send money, honestly i am not stupid it would be great if you did but if each of you that read this just go and sign up for my Facebook and YouTube pages then as soon as I hit the required amount i can start to generate ad revenue which i hope will give me enough to buy at least paints and glue. My thanks to you whatever you decide.
