Latest Video (2017-10-20): Sprint Scout VTOL:
Battletech Assembly Playlist:

Hi everyone!

I've bought a lot of mechs recently, from various places, and also stripped the paint off of a lot of my current mechs. During stripping, some of them fell apart in the SuperClean (purple stuff) bath and needed to be put back together.

Since I had to reassemble these anyways, I figured, why not record it and have a record for people to refer back to? There's a lot of times that mistakes can be made (I reversed the missile racks on a Longbow, and on a Catapult), and times where you just don't know where to begin, and times when even a thousand pictures can't tell you what way to glue it.

So I've created the channel Miniatures Assemble! up on youtube and will be posting videos every week (Friday) with how to assemble some of these models. The short term goal of the channel is to have it self-sustaining (meaning I buy a model every week, assemble it, and post the video for everyone), maybe even have IWM put a section on their site for assembly videos (here's hoping!).
While created primarily for Battletech (my first love), I am open to other games as well (I have some Rifts miniatures that I CERTAINLY will need to figure out and get assembly videos), but for now will stick with Battletech, as I have about 6 months worth of content mostly recorded, including an unseen series, and the WoB packs.
Let me know your thoughts and comments, if you have any mechs you would like to see, let me know (if I have recorded them I'll put them ahead of the schedule, otherwise I will buy new ones when cash flow allows).

Thanks guys!

I've updated the list so it is now alphabetical.
Also, if you have any requests, please let me know, and I'll either pull that video ahead or get a hold of that model.
Thanks you guys for the feedback. I feel that I can and am doing this a lot better since I've started!

Okay everyone! I've updated the list. While the youtube list will always have the latest, I will try to make sure this list is more up to date from now on.
Now that I'm done with overtime, I'll be getting back to making these videos. I'm going to start slowly, try to keep to a one a week schedule.
I'll also be taking another trip to Iron Wind Metals soon, so I'll be having another big haul in addition to what I still have to assemble here.
I'm also looking into getting a new camera (Sony HDR-CX405) so that my work flow goes more smoothly, I don't have to rely on importing from a DV cassette, and I can sort out my episodes better. Also if you've noticed the voice quality improved, I did get a Blue Snowball microphone, and it's been working great!
