Who am I?


My Name is Brad, and I enjoy building 3d Metal Models like those from Metal Earth, Piececool, MU, Tenyo, and Picture Kingdom to name a few. I also enjoy sharing my builds via YouTube and helping others by sharing my knowledge, experience. Recently I have also begun designing my own custom tools to help with building and shaping these metal models.


Why A Patreon account?

There are costs involved in building these models and making these videos. Building these models is my hobby and I don’t mind sinking my own money into it but in all honesty, all of these models can get pricey. Sure I can make some money off of YouTube, but ad revenue from YouTube is unreliable at best and to make use of it I have to force more ads on viewers like you. I don’t like ads, I doubt you do either. By starting a Patreon account and asking for few dollars a month from those that enjoy and benefit from my videos I can and have easily exceeded what I could earn from ads, and you can watch my videos without pesky ad interruptions (as it should be).

Patreon is an easy way for fans like you to contribute to the success of this channel, it’s build videos, weekly news videos, and custom tool development. Becoming a Patreon supporter gives you the opportunity to provide direct feedback. You can directly help this channel and it’s community of 3D metal Model builders grown. You will also have access to my recently created Discord server where you can chat with me directly if you have questions or need help with your builds.

Where does the money go?

First, the money provided by fans and viewers like you goes towards new models for me to build and make build videos of. Keeping the build videos coming is first. Anything beyond that goes towards video editing software so I can make higher resolution videos. Anything beyond that will go towards tool development. Right now I am using my local library’s Idea Lab and 3D printers to prototype and print tools. I want to get my own 3D printer so I can do more. With my own 3D printer, I can spend more time developing new tool ideas, and print tools faster and more efficiently allowing me to more quickly provide shaping tools for others.

I also have plans for custom display bases with magnets inside which will help hold unstable models up and keep them from falling over. To effectively make these bases, I will need to have my own 3D.

Thank you for your consideration.

Keep on keeping on,
Brad
