Lockdown continues.

After yesterday’s announcement it seems I will he remaining in lockdown for around another 3 weeks, so that means my lockdown live-streams will continue for a little longer!

Join me on Tuesdays for building my Nanobrick London skyline, Wednesdays for Wooden Wednesday and building the Model Aviator, and Friday for more Lego kits.

Obviously things can change as we go through this pandemic together, so I will be posting the video links for the week ahead on Mondays, and let you know when anything changes.

Thank you for your continued support, stay safe, wash your hands, and above all try to enjoy yourselves.

More upgrades

I have spent a couple of days trying to bring a little bit of professionalism to my channel/ streams. (I know, I know…)

I have created some new intro rolls for my streams, so I can have a 5 minute ‘break’ before i go live. I have made them for the Lockdown, Wooden Wednesday and the Warhamster livestreams. Hopefully they work as intended and give me a chance to get things prepared and ready just before going on camera, while getting the stream started and giving people a chance to get into the chat.

I shall be using one on Friday for the Lego Lockdown. Let me know what you think. (They aren’t really very different to what I have been using for the last week or 2, but behind the scenes they are. It should make things easier for me going forwards, and that’s got to be a good thing, right?)

I have also tidied the end videos, if anyone waits around that long. 🙂

Hopefully you are all surviving the various lockdowns we are having around the world, hopefully things will go back to ‘normal’ soon, whatever that turns out to be.

Stay safe, look after each other, and above all: Try to enjoy yourselves.

See you online soon.

Channel upgrade!

As I am closing in on 3000 youtube subscribers over at Youtube.com/GrossModels I’ve decided it’s time to improve things around here.

The first thing is a small visual overhaul. I have got some animations done for the Gross Models logo, and will be adding them into videos and live-streams.

I expect I’ll be using them without the audio, or at least over my usual theme.

I have several more and plan to use a selection of them for different things.

Please let me know what you think, and if you have other ideas for freshening things up around here!

Evening with update

I am going to try adjusting the frequency of the Evening with streams, the weekly streams are getting a little tiring for me, I guess you lot must be getting bored too!

I’m going to switch to 2 streams a month, keeping the last Thursday of the month as an “Everyone” show and having the other as a “Gang” stream. This one will probably be the 2nd Thursday of the month.

If demand is high I can always chuck in extra streams, and probably will if something of note comes along, but for now we will see how it goes.

So, no stream this coming Thursday, the next is on the 12th March.

See you there!

Streaming!

I took this picture while setting up for the Warhamster stream, I just thought I’d share. 🙂

I use Streamlabs OBS for the hamster stream, it lets me show the bench cam in 1080p so you can see most of the mistakes I make live!

If you didn’t catch it, I stream Warhammer stuff live every Sunday evening. You can always catch my live-streams on youtube.com/GrossModels/live when they are on!

Warhamster update

Last night marked a huge milestone for me and the Warhamster stream.

It was the first time ever that I have have more than 50 viewers at one time (51 actually!)

I don’t know if it was the subject (the Fighta Bomberz) or just word of the streams getting around, but I’d like to thank everyone for joining me while I build and paint.

I thought I’d take the opportunity to post some pictures of the planes in progress to try to entice more of you to come along and watch! 😉

The first 2 painted in base colours

I painted the first 2 back before Christmas and then moved on to another project. In the new year I opened a vote to see what I should build next, and they came out top.

I then asked for comments for the colours of the other 2 planes, with “Purple” and “The Fang” winning.

The 4 ready for details

Last night I got some detail metallic painting on all 4 planes, they still have some more to add but I’m happy with how they are coming along.

Getting there!

Come and watch what happens next, sundays from 8pm. YouTube.com/GrossModels/live
