This level gets you exclusive early access to all new items headed to my online store. I will post new releases here 24 hours before they go on general sale to the public. 

You get first chance to purchase toys and original works. And as some things are unique or very short edition runs this gives you an advantage.

I don't release new work every month, but regularly throughout the year.

Access to ALL my posts.



About Doktor A.

My name is Bruce Whistlecraft, though I am better known as Doktor A.

I was trained as an Industrial Model-Maker and have 30 years experience. I have worked for much of that time in the Toy Industry as a designer and prototype builder. I now make and sell my own ranges of toys and art collectibles.

I want to help you get better at making things you love.
I want to share with you the knowledge I have gained over the last three decades. To help you create your own projects and products.

I love making robots, old fashioned robots, wonky vintage robots, classic horror icon robots and mostly mechanical Retro Futurist "Victorian" robots called Mechtorians.
(You can learn all about the 200 plus Mechtorian characters I have created over at

You don't have to be making robots to benefit from my in depth step-by step guides and tutorials. You will find all sorts of helpful info on different aspects of model-making, finishing and painting in my feed. As well as guides to tools and materials.

Plus I am always on hand to answer any questions you may have for me.

I am an "old-school" model-maker by trade. I work with my hands and a few basic tools in a mostly analogue style. Though sometimes I employ a little digital magic here and there as part of a larger project. So you don't need a huge fully fitted out workshop to follow me.

If you are already a fan of my work you will get an exclusive glimpse behind the curtain, into my studio and see how my pieces are created as well as exciting reveals of new works.

As well as supporting my work and getting exclusive access to the process you have the option to receive splendid monthly rewards direct to your door anywhere in the world.
You can choose between printed matter and original works and really start to build an impressive collection.

I also post news of upcoming events and products.
Patrons also get offered priority in purchasing new releases and original works.

All this as well as my regular free updates on my characters is waiting for you.

So please think about becoming a Patron today!
Support me. And let me help support you.

Making robot artworks is a complicated, expensive and time consuming business.
Raising this money each month would help cover some of the running costs of my studio. This would free up time for me from chasing cash to creating new work.
I would be able to experiment more, work on more ambitious projects and produce more variations of small run resin editions.
