Modelmaking Guru is creating video guides/tutorials for Gunpla, sci-fi & military models

patrons

Welcome, and thank you for considering supporting me!

I have been a modelmaker for over thirty years, and over the last few I have been filming my builds for YouTube in the form of tutorials and helpful guides. With the support of Patrons I will be able to build more, film more, spend more time with you on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and here, guiding, advising and shooting the breeze. I can also invest in better equipment, better video editing software and more, which I will also be able to use to create more varied content such as convention footage and out-and-about stuff. If pledges reach a high enough level, I'll be able to have enough of an income to offer giveaways of builds and unopened kits to ALL my followers.
 
So again, a million thanks for deciding to help support me, I love you all and I never believed what they said about you anyway.

Awesome! You have chosen to help me out! Your super-lovely support helps me continue this work. Your pledge may be little, but your heart is big and I love you just as much as anyone else who is kind enough to help me out! For your thoughtful support, you get  access to non-video Patreon exclusive posts and comments on this page, access to Patreon Lens videos, access to all my non-Patreon video content a week before the rest of the general public ADVERT-FREE (excludes eModels videos), access to the Patron-exclusive Discord server, and will be credited and thanked at the end of each and every video I post, so your kindness can be noted for all to see!

You are an awesome person and I love you (although I don't want to have your babies or owt like that). You are contributing what you are able and I am incredibly grateful. Patrons contributing $5 a month will have the same rewards as the tier one pledge as well as access to eModels build videos a ADVERT-FREE a week before they appear on my channel.  and will be credited and thanked at the end of each and every video I post, so your kindness can be noted for all to see!

Holy cow! Look what you just did! Your partronage is super-awesome and I don't know what to say. If everyone is as generous as you, then I'll be able to do this full time and spend my days doing what I love, for you guys. Your wonderful contribution gets you the same benefits as the Tier one and two pledges, as well as access to Patreon-exclusive posts, videos and builds, and access to "Modelmaker's Treehouse Club AFTER HOURS" , the adult-oriented part of our new video podcast. The family-friendly podcast will be available to all, but the "AFTER HOURS" segment with more swearing, adult conversation and totally random subject matter will only be available to Patreon subscribers. I will also give advance notice of giveaways, competitions and build sales to Patreon subscribers at this level and above, before they are announced to the wider public. You will also be eligible for Patreon-exclusive giveaways and competitions. 

There may or may not be baby-having at this pledge level.

There are no words, and I DEFINITELY want to have your babies. All of them. All.

For this level of contribution, you retain all the benefits of all other pledge tiers, but you get an extra awesome benefit - after three consecutive successful pledge payments at this tier, you will be gifted an HG gunpla kit of your choice, fully built and painted to a minimum of Skill Level 3 detail. Alternatively you can choose a small Warhammer 40K vehicle kit (we can discuss, but I would say stick to <£30 kits)  instead. This will be shipped to you free of charge (unless the size of the model and packaging is excessive in which case I may ask you to make a partial contribution towards shipping, but we will discuss that in advance).  If possible, the build may be filmed as a Patreon-exclusive series (unless the build is particularly complex in which case it will not be filmed other than quick video diary updates). 


ALTERNATIVELY!

Why not wait for something better? Instead of taking the offer above after three pledges, why not  leave it for 12 pledges? Patrons who have happily contributed 12  consecutive pledge payments at this tier (and not previously taken their free HG build after three) will be able to choose an MG kit and it will receive the full Skill Level 5 paint job. Alternatively, if you wish you can instead choose a Warhammer 40K vehicle kit (plastic only - excludes Forgeworld kits). "Vehicles" includes Imperial Knights and so on. I *may* be open to non-vehicle WH kits, but my strengths lie in the vehicles - but you are welcome to ask.

If possible, the build may be filmed as a Patreon-exclusive series (unless the build is particularly complex in which case it will not be filmed other than quick video diary updates). This will be shipped to you free of charge (unless the size of the model and packaging is excessive in which case I may ask you to make a partial contribution towards shipping, but we will discuss that in advance).

Please note the build offer includes build and paint, not lighting, custom construction, dioramas or modification. This offer excludes the MG Destiny kits and variants, as those kits are HORRIBLE and I will hate you. I also reserve the right to suggest alternatives if you choose a kit that I feel will be a nightmare or LIVING HELL for me to build. The HG offer excludes excessively large kits such as Dendrobium or Neo Zeong due to the incredibly high cost of shipping such items (several hundred pounds at least). Offer is valid for one redemption per patron per 12-month subscription period and can be repeated after every 12 pledge payments. 

I will contact you when your 3x or 12x payment period is up. Please be aware there may be significant delay between your pledge period and the kit being completed - if I have a number of patrons at this level I will have to build their kits one by one in order, and I most likely will also be in the middle of a build, but I will keep you updated. 


Please be aware that cancelling or reducing your pledge below this tier before the 3x or 12x pledge triggers will reset your counter back to zero.

GET ME TO THE HARBOUR, I NEED TO WORK ON MY YACHT HAIR.

Once Patrons support me to this level, them I am a free man and can spend 7 days a week building, painting, creating content and hanging out with you lot, you bunch of jackanapes and ne-erdowells. I'll also be able to film more builds exclusively for Patreon supporters AND keep non-supporters happily in video content too. I'll be able to go to events, conventions and anything else that I think you may enjoy for filming or for writeup. I will also be able to run giveaways for built models and kits or anything else that tickles my fancy. Seriously, if we get here, I won't be able to thank you enough, but I will try my hardest.
